Cheirotonus jambar is endemic to the northern part of Okinawa Island in the Ryukyu Islands (Nansei-shoto), Japan. Cheirotonus jambar lives as one small population on Okinawa Island in the Ryukyu Islands of Japan. Although protected it faces many threads, the main thread being ongoing deforestation. More information (with a quite depressing outlook for the beetle) on

This is the model made by Colorata for their 2017 'Nature's library, Janbaru Creatures' release. It makes a nice addition on its base.

Next to the two Kaiyodo ones. The detail in the Kaiyodo ones is far superior to the rougher molding and little messy painting of the colorata beetle.
