I think yours is Chrysochroa fulminans, very highly glossy green or sometimes blue. There is sometimes a red posterior tip, especially in strong sunlight. Melobasina is not highly polished like your one is. Metallic Green Borer beetle is a correct name and Jewel beetle is another generic name for the order Buprestidae.http://www.godofinsects.com/index.php/mu...
