Beetle photographed during the Maenporth BioBlitz 2008. It may well have been ID'd by the student who used the photographs for her project but I left Falmouth Marine School before finding out what it was. Ideas please!

leaf beetle

I'd say this is a leaf beetle (family Chrysomelidae), and based on size and shape the one that springs to mind is Timarcha goettingensis, but until someone writes the 'field guide to beetles from below' I'm not really sure :-)
