Oedemera nobilis (Scopoli, 1763)
Coleoptera: Oedemeridae
Common names: False Oil Beetle, Thick-Legged Flower Beetle, Swollen-Thighed Beetle

Oedemera nobilis is a very common insect in Crete and in mediteranean countries as well. The male of Oedemera nobilis, as in most Oedemera species, possesses the hind femora very swollen, whereas in female the femora are thin ( I posted the female in WS); the elytra are strongly narrowed towards the apexes, not hiding the membranous hind wings. It is bright green, frequently with a golden or coppery shine; some individuals are blue or violaceous.

It feeds on pollen and nectar of Asteraceae, Cyperaceae, Convolvulaceae, Cruciferae, Dipsacaceae, Scrophulariaceae, Poacea, Papaveraceae, Plantaginaceae, Rosaceae, Rubiaceae and Apiaceae. The larvae develop on dry stems of Spartium and Cirsium. (Source: Wikipedia)
