first glance i thought j*une
first glance i thought j*une bug, but it's missing hair underneath, it's antenae are straight and long, and it's missing fossorial ridges on it's legs, got me on this one.

Chrysomelidae: Chrysomelinae
It looks familiar.

 
To what Species?
To what species? I've never seen these before. Although I think it could be some kind of leaf beetle, judging by the antenna and the metallic sheens on it's elytra and the fact that I've seen way too many leaf beetles. It just looks like one to me. Correct me if I'm wrong.
