I found this small Curculionidae, light green and cyan (azure), I don't know this order, around the web I found a similar one: Polydrusus sericeus.
Maybe at least the genus is correct ...

Thanks for the help.
Another beautiful photo!
These metallic green-blue weevils are difficult. Your suggestion might be right, but there are others, such as Phyllobius and Pachyrhinus (though I don't know about their distribution). See here for some of them - http://claude.schott.free.fr/Phyllobius/Pyll-Poly-liste-planches.html
If I had to choose, I would say you are right with Polydrusus (based on how the antennae meet the head).
But I could not ID the species (eg. P. impressifrons looks possible).
For the first I want to thank you for the help. And, I'm happy to know that you are good not only with the Lepidoptera
You are the second person that say P. impressifrons, a friend looking at the photo said the same thing.
I'm not good with Coleoptera, I think I'll put a cf on the P. impressifrons.
BTW, are you good with the Ortoptera too? I have a Barbitistes sp. to ID
Orthoptera - no, not very good
