how about Phaedon prasinellus?

 
OK
Thanks for the suggestion. I checked the key, and I think you are right. I see the striae rows more clearly now, it isn't as confused as I thought and reading further in the key it mentions "distinguished only upon careful examination". I wasn't careful enough. That lone Phaedon prasinellus that is there needs company anyway.
