Description:

Ladybird sized shiny beetle with stripes. Never seen before but this year Sage in my garden has been infested with them. Not a problem (I have enough Sage to share).
I have just this year removed an overgrown lavender bush from beside this sage plant.
Anyone know if they might be harmful to other plants?

Sorry David, I should have made myself clearer, your ID is correct but you have not added a Latin name to it.
