Silpha laevigata

Silpha laevigata

Observation - Silpha laevigata - UK and Ireland. Description: my discovery of Stictoleptura and lesser stag on this same spot has spurred me to look again at this beetle found in early may. About 20-23mm long, not including the head, flattish. I can't match it to any of the beetles I've seen so far
