Description:

Seen on top of a nettle in damp woodland. Despite the fact that the pronotum is not metallic green, as described in my field guide, I think this could be C. polita as I've seen other photos of this species with the reddish pronotum shown here. However, it's a new species for me and I'm not certain about the id.
