RED CARDINAL BEETLE


This medium-sized beetle is found all over Otley, in woodland, along hedgerows, and in parks and gardens.


The adults are sun worshippers and can be spotted sitting still on leaves sunbathing. The larvae are harder to find, they are born flattened so they can squeeze underneath the bark of trees and hide, whilst also eating the larvae of smaller insects.
