Colaspis pini (or flavocostata)
I´d go for Colaspis pini for this one. C. recurva is entirely pale yellow brown. This one has some darker metallic lustre to it at least on the underside. C. recurva has its body beneath without any piceous or metallic colouring (Blake 1974). I don´t see much of an green lustre on the elytra though so I`d go for Colaspis pini. The antenna also seems to fit that species better (all dark at the tip in Colaspis flavocostata)

Moved from Colaspis.
