Beetle? - Lytta aenea

Beetle? - Lytta aenea
Delaware County, Pennsylvania, USA
Head reminds me of an ant, though it looks like has a beetle's body. Was walking about with much sense of direction I found it quite amusing as it traversed between branch and leaf trying to see where solid ground was, didn't seem to need to fly anywhere so maybe it's abdomen does not contain wings. Didn't see another in sight.
