New garden species

Spotted willow leaf beetle

An older observation. This nice looking little beetle wandered around on the trampoline. It is a Spotted willow leaf beetle (Chrysomela vigintipunctata) [1]. The species is associated with willow trees [2], but those are not present in the direct vicinity. So probably an accidental visitor, but still a new garden species.
