Oedemera (Oncomera) femoralis
Jake has just given me one of three beetles he and Mike found whilst working the Ivy Blossom at Lavernock a few weeks ago. It is a distinctive species but not well recorded - Oedemera (Oncomera) femoralis. At about 2cm long it's not one you can easily overlook and yet it's not at all well recorded, with less than 30 records in the SEWBReC database for the county.
