ID Comment

There are some very similar species, do you have a side shot covering the thorax. This may be a Malachite Beetle but there would need to be a red patch on the side of the thorax.

You have also entered this twice, perhaps you should delete one entry.

In fact I have just noticed that an ID has been entered on your other posting so perhaps it's wise to delete this one.
