Stripey Beetle

I trimmed the rosemary bush at the weekend and this little fellow was tucked away on a leaf. It looks like a ladybird at least in shape but the body is striped and shines with an irridescent hue...beautiful.
Has anyone any idea what it is? My thought was , "is it a foreign ladybird?" There are so many now in the garden.

All help appreciated!

It's a beauty!


  1. Ask Stuart Dunlop on Donegal Wildlife (see my side bar to click on his blog) - he is marvellous at identification.

  2. thankyou Weaver...I have him on my list too, so that's a good idea.


I'm always glad to receive a comment so a big thankyou to all those who leave one.
