Hi All

I have found a species similar to my photos (Potato Capsid) Closterotomus norwegicus.
But I have read that there are similar species with the red dots on the pronotum.
Unfortunately, it doesn't say what those species are.

Found on the edge of a woodland ride.

Could someone try to ID this please?

Thanks, Gareth

Hi Gareth, Closterotomus norwegicus is correct: the spines on the hind tibia are shorter than the tibia's width...
