Thanks for the help bayucca! I think I'll just leave this one to the experts :) I'm not sure I could do much better than your hints!

Definitely a Buprestidae and looks for me like a Dicerca sp., extremely difficult for getting the correct genus and species anyway. This one would need a real expert to be on a safe base. Take mine as a hint for further searches.
