Distinctive little beetle: Body is shiny green and surprisingly slender. Elytra taper and splay towards tip of abdomen and do not completely cover wings. Male, as here, has distinctly swollen hind femora.
Seen here on a roadside verge visiting an oxeye daisy. These beetles favour grassy areas where they feed on flower pollen.
Seen May to August.
