Cardinal Beetle?

Cardinal Beetle?

Observation - Cardinal Beetle?. Description: A 'rectangular' mostly orangey coloured beetle which I hadn't noticed when I was taking the photo of thistles. The image of one I found in my 'British Wildlife' book had black legs whilst 'mine' seems to have orange on the upper parts of its legs.
