Thick-legged flower beetle

Oedemera nobilis

Description:

Oedemera nobilis, also known as the Thick-Legged Flower Beetle is a beetle in the family Oedemeridae, a common species in Europe. The male of Oedemera nobilis, as in most Oedemera species, possesses the hind femora very swollen, whereas in female the femora are thin; the elytra are strongly narrowed towards the apexes, not hiding the membranous hind wings. It is bright green, frequently with a golden or coppery shine; some individuals are blue or violaceous. The pictured male was spotted on a wildflower, in the outskirts of Volos city, Greece.
