Artist's Description

Red Lily Beetle (Lilioceris Lilii) (Other names: Scarlet Lily Beetle, Lily Leaf Beetle or Asiatic Lily Beetle).

My lilies are infested with these and their larvae, causing severe damage to the foliage.
Note the hooked feet for gripping on edges of leaves.

The Lily Beetle is native to mainland Europe and Asia, but not the British Isles. First reported in Southern England in the nineteenth century, it is believed that they did not become established until the 1940s. They had been confined to the south, but the recent increase in average temperatures has allowed them to move northward.

They have also moved to North America, first reported in Canada in 1945 and now spreading south in the eastern states of USA.
