Thank you all so very much for all your wonderful comments and votes following yesterdays upload. Sorry I wasn't around enough to comment on all your images but the last few days of been somewhat hell for me.
Todays upload of a Beetle 'Female' (Oedemera Noblis) was captured whilst out and about trying to take my mind off many unwanted issues.
The male of Oedemera nobilis, as in most Oedemera species, possesses the hind femora very swollen, whereas in female the femora are thin; the elytra are strongly narrowed towards the apexes, not hiding the membranous hind wings. It is bright green, frequently with a golden or coppery shine; some individuals are blue or violaceous. It can only be confused with Oedemera flavipes (which does not live in England), from which it differs by its colour, as well as by the long white pubescence on the head, pronotum and hind tibiae of males.
I hope that you all have a great day ahead, for me well "who knows?"
