That's a Parabuzzy. A Buzzy Beetle with wings. Max HP is 5, Attack is 3, and Defense is 4. I guess those stats are just like a Buzzy. Fire and explosions seem to have no effect, so don't bother, OK? If you flip it over, its Defense goes down to 0, so jump on it first.

Card Description
Just look at this cute little Buzzy Beetle with wings! It'll lose its wings if you stomp on it. Of course, that would be totally heartless.
This is a Parabuzzy. It’s a Buzzy Beetle with wings… Max HP is 1, Attack is 1, and Defense is 3. Even flames won’t scorch its hard shell… If you stomp on it, you’ll remove those wings… But still, those little limbs that hang down from its shell… They’re… …a little cute.

Not to be confused with Para-Beetle

Parabuzzies are Buzzy Beetles that have grown wings, much as Paragoombas and Paratroopas, and are very similar to Para-Beetles. They have appeared in the games Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door and Super Paper Mario. These wings permit them to evade ground attacks from Mario and his party. If hit with a single jump, however, the wings will be knocked off and the Parabuzzy will become a normal, flightless Buzzy Beetle. In Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door, they can be found in the Pirate's Grotto and the Pit of 100 Trials, and in The Overthere and Castle Bleck, in Super Paper Mario. Parabuzzies are impervious to fire and explosions as most Buzzy Beetles. Parabuzzies can jump back on their feet after being knocked on their backs in one turn, unlike Koopa Troopas.
