Oedemera

According to the most up-to-date Guernsey beetle list that I have, the two Oedemera species recorded on the island are nobilis and lurida. No mention of flavipes although that doesn't mean to say that it doesn't occur perhaps.

Oedemera

Yes, it could well be O. lurida and the elytra shape is maybe better for this, though your image doesn't look green enough, but that may be the angle of the light. This site has some good images: http://www.koleopterologie.de/gallery/family/index08.html
