Lily beetles 003

These two lily beetles (poor picture I'm afraid) were on my lily plants along with many others. They had been one on top of the other, presumably mating, until I touched them. i tried to also show the holes they or their larva make in thelily leaves.

It's a bit difficult to make them out in your photo but on the basis that there aren't too many bright red beetles associated with lilies I've agreed with the ID!
