The tansy beetle is a green leaf beetle, about the size of a small finger nail and with a metallic sheen. The common name derives from the tansy plant on which they often feed as both larvae and adults. In Continental Europe, ''C. graminis'' is widespread from Scandinavia to the Mediterranean Sea, but in the majority of countries the species is on the decline.
