I'm not sure what this green and brown beetle is, but I realized recently that it's time to find an Alaskan insect book, and trying to figure out what this critter is inspired me to find such a book. The Kenai Watershed Forum website says they are available in Anchorage at Title Wave and the Natural History Museum. The website has locations in Fairbanks, Soldotna, Eagle River, Homer, and Whitehorse.
Now don't go out and buy these all up before I get one.
