Brilliant green beetle
Dear Bugman,
You have helped me out in the past, here’s one more. Green beetle is maybe 3/4 inch long. Same size as a common ground beetle. Flies ,hops and skitters along. This bug will be shown on our SPACE website, so the answer will reach many people. SPACE is The Spartanburg Area Conservancy, a small not for profit land trust in SC. thanks,

Hi Fred,
This is a Tiger Beetle, probably a Six Spotted Tiger Beetle, sans spots. Tiger Beetles are closely related to Ground Beetles and are fierce predators.
