t is a bright, warm day. The insect flew into the bowl I was preparing for washing-up!
The red bar visible in the circle in photo "bug" is about 1 cm long. The second photo shows the odd markings on the rear.
There is a ring of stiff golden bristles encircling the thorax.
It took a while to dry out but when it was dry the wings were a golden colour.Unlike a may bug, it did not have hard wing cases
