Oh yeah you're right I just found it in a field guide, too! Great, thanks for sharing!
And just found out that Hoplia farinosa is an synonym :)
I did some research yesterday and i found that it is Hoplia farinosa, i just couln't find any common name for this little bug. Oh, and males are more or less blue and females are green to brownish-green.
Nice Pictures! I think these belong to the family Scarabaeidae, could be Cetonia aurata or Potosia aeruginosa but I'm not sure. The colour is a bit different to the ones that I know.
