Chrysolina menthastri, or the mint beetle, is a species of beetle which is scarce in Britain.

With a scattered distribution in the south, this species is one of our most colourful beetles, being a metallic green, reflecting a range of colours. Found in damp places near mint, which it is often seen sitting on.
