Could someone identify this beautiful beetle for me. Found on my lavender bush in Balham, London. Though my flatmate thinks he might have accidentally brought it back from Glastonbury as it was in his room at the weekend!
This is a rosemary beetle (Chrysolina americana). Its a species of beetle belonging to family leaf beetle (Chrysomelidae)
I have that one in My collection, they are common on rosemary or lavender.

I hope he stays
Oh! And as you're from Sweden are you able to identify the Swedish bug I listed in true bugs?
