Help please!

These photos were taken by a colleague of mine at WWT Llanelli while out doing some management on the reserve. Several of us have tried to identify it but no luck - please help!

A leaf beetle, known as Tortoise beetles due to their shape. This one is associated with Fleabane.

Thank you very much - tortoise beetle was our first thought but it didn't seem to match anything we could find in our books! Plenty of fleabane on the reserve so hopefully this won't be the last one we see now we can identify it!
