Crepidodera aurea (Fourcroy, 1785)
A tiny leaf beetle, most often found on Willow or Sallow. They jump readily if disturbed and there are several similar species which make a potential identification difficult. These were found in the overgrown garden of Coultas Farm at Eakring. Photographed in June 2009.
