Green Click Beetle

Hi Clare,
We are relatively confident that we have identified your Click Beetle as a Green Click Beetle,
Nitidolimonius resplendens, based on images posted to BugGuide, which lists the habitat as:  “variously-aged coniferous, deciduous, and mixed forests; on poplar (Populus), willow (Salix), or on shrubs; adults often found on the spring growth of conifers along margins of wetlands and drainages.”  The only sightings reported from BugGuide are in Alaska, Alberta Canada and New Hampshire.
