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.
