Re: the attached I would appreciate some help in identifying this Leaf? beetle please. Initially I thought that it may be a Pine Ladybird Exochomus 4-putulatus but I have since been told that it is not but I cannot see it in my books or on the internet.
It's actually one of the Staphylinidae, Scaphidium quadrimaculatum. I'm surprised to see it on vegetation, it's normally found in damp rotting timber. I've usually found it under rotting logs on the ground.
