Cryptocephalus sp

Thanks, John.
It was on National Trust land so I'm not allowed to take and dissect!! They're beautiful just to look at, though!

If you see another one, there

If you see another one, there is usually a size difference between the two, so unless it were about 5mm long (in which case it could be either), 5 - 8 mm long is C. aureolus and 3 - 5 mm is C. hypochaeridis.
