Chrysina gloriosa

Chrysina gloriosa

Chrysina gloriosa can be found in the American southwest, from Texas to Arizona and into Northern Mexico. Its habitat is high elevation juniper forests for its food of choice is the juniper leaf. Additionally, it can camouflage easily into the juniper trees.  It features stunning bright green and chrome silver stripes - a result of the microscopic structure of each section, with green reflected from cusp-like structures and silver reflected from flat layers parallel to the surface of the elytra (wing covers or "shell").

  • While we try our best to depict the actual colors & design of our butterflies and other insect artworks on our website, please note that colors, rendering and hand crafting may appear differently from one computer to another. We cannot guarantee that the insect & its artwork design you receive will be identical in color, shade or size as the one you see on our website.
  • Our frames are not air-sealed. This will allow you to repair your butterfly, beetle or other insect should it become necessary. Since our insects specimens have been professionally preserved and dried, we guarantee that your display will last and look wonderful for a very long time. Therefore, air sealing is merely a personal choice and not a necessity.  This also allows for inside frame cleaning from time to time such as interior glass due to organic out gassing over time and is natural.
  • We may substitute a different size frameset in same color depending on variability aspects such as insect size and product availability.
  • Most artworks are shipped within a week of ordering but may require a few days longer to prepare some insects.
