... and another beetle (Leiopus nebulosus)
A couple of hours strolling between Tongwynlais and Forest Farm saw various leaf beetles just about everywhere. Also a number of weevils which I'm trying to get 'round to looking at but the most interesting was this beastie, seen on the shrubs along the old canal. It is Leiopus nebulosus (Black-clouded Longhorn Beetle). Aderyn shows no records for Forest Farm, although there are records around Tongwynlais.
