Do you know what plant you

Do you know what plant you found it on? There's one a bit like this that feeds on Viburnum leaves.

Plant

It was on my window, however there is a viburnum (Guelder rose) a few feet away. And I've just remembered, I spotted a larva in June this year on that plant: http://www.ispot.org.uk/node/272157?nav=users_observations

Thanks!

Glad to be able to help.

Glad to be able to help. "Pyrrhalta viburni - Viburnum Leaf Beetle" is very probably the ID, if you want to add it. I must get round to uploading my photos of this species!
