  • Known as a “jewel beetle,” the golden buprestid is in a family of beetles that occurs world-wide, prized for its stunning colors and patterns. The adults lay their eggs on dead,dying, or recently cut trees – most commonly Douglas-fir, but other varieties of pine, spruce and fir as well. These beetles are actually quite common – if you keep your eyes open you are likely to find them in and near forests.
