That's lovely; nice pictures. Adding the text will surely attract an ID, well done.

Sorry that took so long! I was browsing through the iSpot observations of Alder Leaf Beetle in connection with another enquiry, and realised that there were a few misidentifications that had slipped through. Better late than never I hope!
