The small scarabee blue

Author 'Charlemagne' (Id 239269 ) : Do you know the most beautiful Beetles males ? This beautiful insect is deemed to fairly common in summer at the edge of water courses in France. Although he exposes himself to the top of the plant and its color attracts the eye, it is quite small, about 5 millimeters, and its occurrence is relatively fleeting in the season.
This is The Hoplie blue (Hoplia coerulea or Hoplia caerulea) a beetle of the family scarabaeidae and the genus Hoplia.
As seen on the picture, the male, colour metallic blue, something like turquoise, the color of which would be veiled by a thin dust of silver'. Its shell seems so 'precious' that it has sometimes been used in jewelry, for example mounted as a brooch... it's shame !!!
A particularity fun : our beetle blue square at the top of stems or flowers, and there it raises its hind legs to release of volatile molecules of pheromones that attract the females...
