- n. Plural form of buprestid.
Sorry, no etymologies found.
“Beetles on the bottle: male buprestids mistake stubbies for females Coleoptera.”
Although foresters for years have relied on detection traps to survey the movement of other destructive insects, like gypsy moths, they have not been used until now to attract these buprestids, or jewel beetles, because they do not respond as readily to chemical lures.
Meanwhile, a guarantor for surprises is provocateur Jan Fabre; the Belgium artist for example attached for his work "The stupidity carries the death" the head, wings and feet of a duck to a casket which has a coat covered with buprestids.
