Unidentified net-winged beetle, 1-2 cm (sans antennae). "Beetles of this family are elongated and usually found on flowers or stems. The adults of some species are nectarivores while some may have short-lived adult lives during which they may not feed at all. The head is triangular and the antennae are long, thick, and serrate. Most of them are brick-red in colour. They are protected from predators by being toxic." http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lycidae
