$22.75

There is no better emblem of nature's diversity than the beetle! The richness of this order of insects has been a source of fascination and puzzlement to naturalists since ancient times, and will, no doubt, continue so into the remote future.

These beetle earrings represent a member of the family Erotylidae (the Pleasing Fungus Beetles), the study of which could, in itself, absorb the lifetimes of countless entomologists! Modeled in detail, and rendered in a two-toned finish of antiqued pewter and Copper, these earrings might, at first glance, give the appearance of insects crawling on your ears. A great accessory for coleopterists and other entomologists, and anyone else with a fondness for beetles!

Earrings are modeled so as to avoid contact of the wearers skin with the beetle's Copper elytra (wing covers). Ear posts are surgical stainless steel. Comes with a colorful scientific diagram of beetle morphology.
