Colorado beetle (Leptinotarsa decemlineata). This pest species of potatoes is native to North America where it feeds on members of the Solanaceae. Accidentally introduced to Europe in the 1920s it has become a widespread problem but strict control measures in Britain have prevented it establishing itself in breeding populations.
