I'm unable to find this distinctive looking beetle in my field guide and would welcome help with an id. My recollection is that the elytra were greener than they appear in the photographs.
No interactions present.
Many thanks for the id. Updating my records I notice that I made errors entering this observation. I had the wrong date, and consequently the wrong location - both have now been corrected. Apologies.
