Bursting with joyous Yuletide color, this life-sized Mistletoe Beetle (Stephanorrhina guttata) pin adds unusual flair to your holiday sweater or jacket.
Gold-plated metal with red, green, and white colors, just like the real insect. Despite the festive coloring and name, this beetle has nothing to do with the mistletoe plants or cold northern winters - it lives in Nigeria and Cameroon, feeding on nectar and pollen and reveling in its warm climate. Sounds like the perfect holiday to us.
Stained-glass orange wings add just a bit of shimmer and make this piece a treasure to hold. Double posted for security. Comes on a Bug Box kraft backer.
