Flower beetle

Lemodes coccinea

Description:

So much for being called flower beetle. These were obsessed with fungi. Then again there were no flowers around being the middle of winter.

Habitat:

In a local nature reserve.

Notes:

I don't know if they are any bigger in winter but these shots came out much better than my last lot.
superfamily: TENEBRIONOIDEA
family: ANTHICIDAE
subfamily: LEMODINAE
