Caption: Jewel beetle in flight. Jewel beetle (family Buprestidae) flying over a sunflower (Helianthus sp.). These beetles get their name from their bright colours and iridescent cuticle. The larvae bore into the wood, stems or leaves of many tree and shrub species. There are thousands of known jewel beetle species, and they are found throughout the world.
