Dogbane Leaf Beetle???

Green Beetle
I am curious to find out what type of beetle this is. I found it at a campground southwest of Colorado Springs. Thanks!

hi Cindy,
We believe this is a Dogbane Leaf Beetle, Chrysochus auratus, though it seems to lack the brassy sheen of most specimens. There are some entirely green specimens posted to BugGuide.
