Strange bug

Observed: 1st October 2011 By: naomibch

The bug's body (abdomen?) is about 15mm long. It has six legs, a long back with stripey black-and-white bits at the side. It looks like it has hunched shoulders and I think it doesn't have wings. It has 12mm long antenna, a small head shaped like a pen nib. You can see its eyes. The pattern on its back is complicated, mostly brown in colour.
