Ukraine, Rivne region, July 5.
Is it true I think it should be Hedychium virens? Found in a forest clearing in a pine forest on sandy soil.

Hi Victor,

No, :?

You're right this is a male of Hedychrum,
but this is not Hedychrum virens.
Specimens of Hedychrum virens usually may have double size compared to the Hedychrum rutilans that you see on the same flower.
Unfortunately we cannot identify this one.

Cheers

Thanks for pointing out my mistake, Paolo !
Tried to search, but to no avail: little information and photos of species of this genus.
