Saw this metalic green and blackish striped beetle on Ingleby Moor,North Yorkshire a few weeks ago.I would estimate it's body length is about 13-15mm.
It's a Ground Beetle (family Carabidae). It looks like Carabus nitens. It's a rare species in Britain.
Many thanks for your promp reply and identification Florin,it's only taken me a month getting nowhere.
