Saw this very interesting bug on my fuscia, thought it was a ladybird bug but when i picked it up (has a tendancy to 'roll' off the plant) it curls up into a ball! It looks armoured, is black with a couple of white dots. Thank you
The photo is tough to see any detail, but I think this will one of the Weevil species, a better photo of the details might get someone a bit further toward an ID for you, Weevil is the best I can do.
I concur - the rostrum is just about discernible // Mike
Looks like a Cionus species to me. Possibly Cionus scrophulariae
