15-20 mm. Found on woodland path. Can find nothing like it in my field guide. Is it a beetle or a true bug?
No interactions present.
Thanks for your speedy identification. I have found it now in my field guide. Great!
There is no record for this species anywhere in D&G on the Gateway map, so it would be very useful if you could contact your local records centre to let them have the details - http://www.dgerc.org.uk/.
recording wildlife with The Recorder's Year on www.hbrg.org.uk/TRY.html.
I've done that now. Thanks for your help.
