Jewel Beetles--gifts that keep giving!

Had a visit from my friend Jack Hasenpusch the other day. He noted that Australia Post (the Australian postal authority) had issued stamps featuring Australian Jewel Beetles (Buprestidae). To my surprise and pleasure, "Beetles on the Bottle" (Gwynne,Rentz, 1983) got mentioned. The interest just goes on and on.

REMEMBER, click on the items to enlarge.
