Item details



Rare Blue Carpenter Bees (Xylocopa caerulea) from Java. Probably the only blue bee, and only the females are really blue (these are females). Besides the fuzzy grey-blue head, the abdomen is black and the wings have a slightly metallic nature, with purple shine in the right light. They measure about 25mm tall and the wingspan is about 40-50mm. This listing is for one bee.
They are packaged as you see here, with the wings already spread out. All you'll need to do is open the package (carefully!) and glue into your project.

Second Quality (A2): a few came in this batch that look a bit "dirty" or oily. I think it'll clean off easily after you open the packages, but I can't sell them as A quality like this. Worst case, you have to rub the bodies with a little alcohol to take off the oil. Get them for $3 off if you choose this A2 quality.
