Neocrepidodera tranversa (Marsham, 1802)
A small and seemingly common leaf beetle, particularly fond of Thistles. Most often seen as copulating pairs, which jump at the slightest disturbance, making it a difficult photography subject. Found commonly in most habitats where Thistles grow, N. transversa was plentiful at Penny Pasture Common in July 2009.
