Bugle and bug - again!

This one was stood on the very top of the bugle like a fairy on a Christmas tree.

ive looked through loads Gee and i think its from a family of bugs called scentless plant bugs Rhopalidae, which have red heads and sometimes mistaken for fire bugs, it can be identified by smell to, like cinamon aparently lol,marking differ on body and think it said young ones have yellowy green body which i noticed in last pic, but the red head id a sign, so many damn beetles so thats nearest i could find ;o) also common in south parts of england

I've just been out in my garden, Sanbaz, and there a few still about among the Bugle but I didn't try sniffing one as I thought it would end up in my nose! Just the thought of it is making me laugh - I found a site where you can send a photo for identification so I have done that, just out of curiosity. I will let you know if I hear back from them.

You really should have a sniff you know. Not many other pleasures left.

Hi Toto, have you any ideas about this little beastie? I thought about you on Sunday - my daughter took me to the Kent Garden Show at Detling and I wondered if you had been this year?

Hello Gee. No I didn't go this year as i my year for Hampton Court but will probably go next year. As for the bug I will try to find it in one of my books. If I manage to identify it I will let you know.
