Size

Hi Francine, what size is this beetle please ?

Hmmm, size

Hi Chris, good question! I remember it being large but that's not good enough. It's on a privet flower and there are lots of privet leaves around so I would say around 2.5cms, plus the antennae of course. Does that help?

Found it, I think ?

Hi Carol, I found a good match and I think the ID is correct.

I think you're right

I've found this http://www.insectes-net.fr/scopoli/scopo2.htm which shows it quite nicely (in French) with the larger C cerdo.
