Sagra buqueti are a species of iridescent, colorful jungle beetles known either as frog-legged beetles or kangaroo beetles. Reaching a length of 25–50 mm (0.98–1.97 in), they possess striking sexual dimorphism, with males being far larger and with very long and strong hind legs as is common amongst their genus. They are similar in color to several species of scarabs, being primarily a metallic green but with reddish and golden reflections on their elytra (wingcases).

Although little other knowledge is known about the species, it is known that they will pupate into a cocoon on Kudzu, a species of climbing vines. They have also successfully been reared on Sweet Potato.
