The ID suggestion by bayucca is certainly correct. I cannot find a closer species but I think it is not Callidemum hypochalceum

Chrysomelidae, Chrysomelinae, Callidemum sp.. Look at the cool light on your beetle and compare with the ones in the link. Looks quite fine in my eyes. But you have to verify the whole thing!
