I found this green beetle in the back yard trying to hide in the grass. Not sure if it can fly or how it got here, quite curious to find out what it is. I searched a bit on the internet but couldn’t find anything about it.

Dear George,
Just yesterday we posted some images of this pretty Flower Chafer,
Dicranorrhina derbyana, also from South Africa.
