Guernsey beetle query

Just a quick one. Tried to identify the beetle in the photo below found in my front garden (15mm long) and came up with Laemostenus complanatus. Am I along the right lines here? (I will buy a book soon - honest..)


  1. Agreed Mark. Another nice one for the Channel Islands. It's rare in Britain away from Scilly (which is the only place I've seen it).

  2. Excellent. Seems to be common here - this was one of three easily found under stuff in the garden.
