I'm growing a few New Zealand indigenous trees in my garden. Today I spotted a couple of these pretty little beetles wandering around on the trunk of my Red Beech*. I wonder what they are. Anyone know?
This page in my Guide to European Creepy Crawlies is not much help, but is the closest. My handsome blue beetle has big thighs (ha ha), iridescent blue elytra (wing-covers) with those bright yellow patches, and is about 10 mm long.

Apparently this is a flower longhorn beetle, Zorion species. Thank you Eila and Peter.
