Known as the jewels of the forest, these weevils are beyond beautiful. Metallic blue and sea green stripes make for an amazing addition to any cabinet of curiosities or classroom educational tool!
Eupholus is a genus of beetle in the family Curculionidae. The species include some of the most colourful of the weevils. The color likely serves as a warning to predators that they are distasteful. Most species feed upon yam leaves, which are toxic to some animals. The species occur in PNG, West Irian, and adjacent Islands.
Encased in a black or white plastic float frame with elasticity film which allows you to easily see both sides of the mantis. The plastic film allows you to better see the physical characteristics of your critter while keeping them safe. You can open the frame but it will probably damage your new insect friend.
The frame is approximately 3.75" x 3.75". 4" with base.
The critter pictured is an example of what you will be receiving. No worries, they are all about the same and super lovely.
