Can anyone tell me what this is , please? Found on raspberry canes in OX10
Actually, it is not a weevil; not even a beetle.
It is a member of the true bugs (Hemiptera).
It is a nymph of
the rhombic leatherbug, Syromastus rhombeus
dock bug, Coreus marginatus
The latter is more common and more commonly-associated with soft fruit such as respberries.
I would lean towards the latter.
In looking at the photos, bear in mind most of them are of adults, which look different.

(Boat bug, Enoplops scapha is somewhat similar.)
It looks like a Dock bug nymph to me.
Thank you both
My 7 year old grandson thinks his grandma can identify anything - and on this I had no idea!!!!
