    Leuba Ridgway says

    Small extremely iridescent beetle with a smooth and shiny thorax and beautiful shimmering elytra. The beetle had perhaps just landed and was in the process of folding-in it's hind wings ( Pic1). The elytra appeared a little too short to completely cover the hind wings and abdomen. The antennae had about 11 segments.
