emerald green beetle - Chrysochus auratus

emerald green beetle - Chrysochus auratus
Spirit Mound Historic Prairie near Vermillion, SE South Dakota, Clay County, South Dakota, USA
August 9, 2009
Size: at least 10 mm long
On cup plant (Silphium perfoliatum), it easily flew from one plant to another, but was actually rather tame.

Moved from ID Request.

Not an expert
