The listing is for 1x beetle larva, of a rare species of dazzling blue/green flower beetle which was just brought into captive breeding recently, from an expedition to the mountaintops of Western Iran at altitudes as high as 2600m above sea level. Please note that this species is not fully blue and also has an underlying emerald tone.

These are CAPTIVE BRED in my collection, with this stock originating from the Kohgiluyeh and Boyer-Ahmad province, Iran.

The adult beetles feed on a variety of fruits such as banana, apple, pear, peach and watermelon. The larvae feed on decaying wood and leaf litter.
