Something that looked a lot like a tiger beetle

This beetle flew from an oak tree onto a friends bag. The habitat a very small patch of trees on a steep, rocky, grassy hillside. It looked a lot like a dune tiger beetle but the habitat doesn't fit. Definitely wasn't a green tiger beetle, the colouring was much more like a dune tiger beetle but perhaps the mandibles were slightly too small. I am very frustrated to say that I didn't manage to get a picture of it before it flew off to land in the canopy of another tree.
