green beetle id?   lincolnshire, eng



I have seen this beetle in my garden for the first time and am hoping someone would be kind enough to identify it for me please.

I have looked at several beetle websites and cannot see my beetle on them. I believe I may have also seen in in Cornwall on my holiday in June but it could be different as this one doesn't have wings.

I am based in Lincolnshire, England in case that helps at all.

It was just in my front garden near some leaves on the ground (bark).


It is hard backed, similar to a tortoise as only it's legs come out of it's hard shell-like body, it's head is separate but alot smaller.

It has two striped antennae and has spots arounds it's side in a line and has some darker coloured parts on its back.

It has 6 green legs and can move incredibly fast.

Approx size is 10mm long x 0.6mm wide.

it has black eyes and lots of tiny black dots on it's back.

It does not have any wings.


Please see the attached picture. I have also included a picture of it's underside.


Any help is much appreciated.
