My kids asked me what this is. I don’t know!
This colorful Rove Beetle is Staphylinus caesareus.

just found your entry about that rove beetle from Kent, UK on your website, category ‘what’s that bug’. You told Karen it was a staphylinus caesareus but I am pretty sure from what I see on the foto, that it is a Platydracus stercorarius.
