There were three small beetles on a field near Hanover, E Lower Saxony, Germany today. Here the pics:

Please try to identify them and if possible their sex.

Thank you, Xaver

The top two photos are Oedemera. The middle is an Oedemera nobilis male (having very swollen hind femora), and the top may be Oedemera lurida (don't know which sex), but I'm not sure which other species occur in your area.
