Oil Beetle

Found in the garden today  - the blue legs and antenna were very striking. I think it's a Black Oil Beetle but I'm sure there is somebody out there who can tell me if I'm wrong!

  1. Hi, it's difficult to tell if this is a black or vioulet oil beetle - it all depends on the little projection at the base of the thorax (middle segment of the beetle). I'm sure Buglife would like to know about your observation https://www.buglife.org.uk/activities-for-you/wildlife-surveys/oil-beetle-hunt
