12 unbelievable beetle species

Dogbane beetles Found throughout eastern North America, these beautiful beetles boast shiny, metallic hues and spend their days looking lovely and munching on a diet of their namesake, dogbane. The dogbane beetle belongs to the massive family of leaf-eaters known as Chrysomelidae, making it a distant cousin to the pesky Colorado potato beetle.

Make heads turn with this dragonfly barrette measuring 2-1/2" across. Each of the topaz colored and light Colorado topaz color stones are hand set on the filigree wings of the beautifully shaped dragonfly. Antiqued copper tone metal gives this a vintage jewelry look.

Up to a whopping 22 mm in length with bright metallic green coloration, the native Rainbow Scarab, Phanaeus vindex, is the largest and most spectacular of the about 90 dung beetle species inhabiting Colorado.
