Comments Off on Jewel beetle: Ovalisia vivata
Rei and I went for a short walk near the house and found two of these metallic green/red jewel beetles. This species is wood boring and probably a pest, but that doesn’t stop it from being a very beautiful insect.
Jewel beetle = masuda-kurohoshi-tamamushi
Location: Small woods next to Munakata Common (Google map)
