On Fleabane. An adult Cassida murraea was spotted on this or a very near plant 11 days ago. Approx 8mm fully extended.
I have posted 5 photos. I believe each shows a different feature more clearly. This specimen appears to have gone into defensive mode and excreted at some stage during the time I was photographing it. Although the photos have not been posted in chronological order this should be easy to work out from the file names.
