Dear A Smith,
We located your beetle on Nature Spot where it is identified as a Swollen Thighed Beetle,
Oedemera nobilis, and this information is provided:  “Habitat Flower meadows, gardens and waste ground where they visit flowers.  When to see it April to September.  Life History This beetle is a pollen feeder.”  It is a False Blister Beetle in the family  Oedemeridae.  We found it in our archives and we previously used the common name Thick Legged Flower Beetle.
