The ID suggestion by bayucca is certainly correct. I cannot find a closer species but I think it is not Callidemum hypochalceum Metallic Green Leaf Beetle - Callidemum sp.http://www.brisbaneinsects.com/brisbane_...
Fabulous colour and shots.
Thanks Bayucca, will follow it through
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!
Still unsure on the ID of this beetle
Cute face on 4th :)
Nice spot MacChristiansen!
