The Jewel Beetle is found on trees.
The Jewel Beetle can be donated to the museum. Upon doing so, the following text is given by Blathers:
"Jewel beetles are very pretty insects that show a red line on their green bodies when refracting light. They're so pretty that it's believed people used them for craftwork a long time ago. Their shiny wings are easy to notice, but birds have a hard time targeting them. This is because birds aren't very good at seeing things that change color in different lights."
Upon catching the insect, the player will say the following:
"I caught a jewel beetle! A real diamond in the rough!"
