Found under bark of felled timber in open wood
No interactions present.
It was not moving until I disturbed it when I lifted the bark off the fallen tree which was Scot's pine I then put it in the dish to get the picture's. I did put it back and the bark too,it was -2c ,how do you tell the differance between the two this one seemed to be more colourfull than previous find's
It's to do with whether the elytra (wing cases covering the abdomen) are smooth or have lengthwise ridges, and there are also differences in the shape of the pronotum (top of thorax). Compare:
