Hi
Just getting confirmation that this is a longhorn flower beetle.
Beautiful metallic green shell with orange legs.
Was sitting in a tree which had white flowers. May 30,2015

Dear Terri,
Your beetle is indeed a Flower Longhorn in the subfamily Lepturinae, and we have identified it as
Gaurotes cyanipennis, a species with no common name, thanks to images posted on BugGuide where it states:  “Comes in 2 color phases, smooth metalic purple or green. Legs yellow. Elytra smooth, pronotum tapers gradually.”
