Here is a creature I have never seen before, discovered while doing the big Garden Clean-Up.
When I spotted it - and it was hard not to, with its smart grenadier-guard red and black regimentals - I was struck with the thought that it wasn't a native EnZed-er. It occurred to me that most native species are rather drab, and the ones that are not, are (mostly) quite well-known to me.
Sure enough my Andrew Crowe identifies it as Porrostoma rufipenne (was Metriorrynchus) - a beetle from Australia. The grubs live under the bark of fallen trees, and there are plenty of those habitats down our bank. This adult would have been looking for nectar or pollen to feed upon.
The antennae are interesting, being strongly serrated. I expect the colour advertises they are not good to eat, but I didn't taste it to confirm this.
