Tiny beetle, smaller than the stitch on my trouser leg. Chalk downland.
No interactions present.
Thanks Martin, I wouldn't have thought of Cryptocephalus, am used to the green species.
There's black ones and red ones as well! Sizes vary but the shape is fairly constant, with the head tucked away under the front of the thorax (I believe 'Cryptocephalus' translates as 'hidden head').
