I cant’ find this insect.
It seems like ”procerus violaceus” but there are many doubts.
Please help me !!
Though this is definitely a Ground Beetle in the family Carabidae, we are uncertain of the species. The name you suggested is an obsolete name, and you may be searching in older texts. The genus Procerus is now listed as Carabus, and that is a likely classification of your insect.
