Polydrusus formosus

Length 5 to 6 mm. A bright metallic green weevil with round scales, a dark club to the pale antennae and a short groove between the eyes. It does not have any setae (bristles). It has conspicuous striae on the elytra. The scales can wear off to reveal the dark body beneath.

Seen outside the cafe in Chiswick House Gardens in June 2023.
