A pretty little (6-8mm) beetle but it is a serious pest of lilies.

Originally from central Europe it is not native to the British Isles, and used to be an occasional visitor, but became established in the South East of England since about 1940. Since then it has spread North & West and can now be found in most of the Southern half of the UK.
At the present time (2007) it is still rare in Wales and not found much north of Lancashire, but is likely to spread further, especially if the climate continues to warm.
