Philippine Carabid species are not always all black or drab colored beetles but there are also spectacular examples as shown above. Just marvel at these metallic colors that rivals some species of Buprestidae. These are typically small species, less than two centimeters in length. Unfortunately, I have no idea what group or species, even just to the genus level, these belong to as I’m not really familiar with this family, much less have a contact who is studying these.
