Mystery Beetle?- Solved
Hi all, my son found this on my rear patio in Upper Caldecote on 12th April. Having looked through my insect books I still have no idea what it is. Approx. 12mm long. Does anyone know what it is, as I'm sure I've never seen one before.
It looks like this is a Cramp-ball Fungus Weevil Platyrhinus resinosus. Identified by Andy Whitney.

An Emperor gets his wings
Andy checked the Emperor pupae on his way out to work this morning and this male had emerged from the pupa and was looking for somewhere to perch whilst inflating his wings. I took some photos as it happened and three are below.
