I found this small beetle on my outside wall under a light. About 6mm long .Any ideas as to id please ?
No interactions present.
There's some information about distinguishing Lema cyanella and Oulema obscura on the Watford Coleoptera Group website:
The location link for this observation shows it to be just off the coast of Scotland, I'm guessing that might have gone wrong, would you mind editing it?

Thanks Martin,I"ve uploaded my only other picture and amended map .
Thanks for the second photo. My feeling is that this looks more like Oulema obscura, but I can't quite see enough detail, and also that is supposed to be the smaller of the two species at 3-4mm. So I'm not confident of adding a more specific ID.
