Description:

Netted this beetle as it flew low over the vegetation in a stand of willow close to a stream. Initially I thlought it may be Oulema rufocyanea/melanopus agg. but there are differences - the head, legs and tarsi are not dark and the hind femurs are enlarged, the antennae are orange and black and it seems broarder than other photographs that I have seen. Can anyone identify it please?
