Artist's Description

The cardinal beetle preys on other insects and is normally found on flowers at the edges of woodland
The cardinal beetle is a strong flier. The cardinal beetle is bright red; in that way it warns predators that it is toxic.
People often mistake the smaller Scarlet lily beetle, Lilioceris lilii, for a cardinal beetle.
Pyrochroa serraticornis, which is very similar to P. coccinea except it has a red head instead of a black one, is also referred to as a Cardinal beetle.1
