Way too small for a musk beetle. Can't come up with a better ID at the moment.

I'm pretty sure it's Oedemera and lurida is pretty common where I am. Could be virescens...

Of course an Oedemeridae, I must have been sleeping when I looked at this observation the first time! I would stick to a genus ID to be on the safe side.
