Chrysomelidae are some of the most abundant and widespread beetles in the world. Some are considerable pests, but most - like the glorious Chrysolina graminis - are handsome. We are fortunate to have such a lovely beetle on our riverside. This should be a lovely entrance to the city near the station My photos https://paulbartlett.zenfolio.com/tansybeetlechrysolinagraminis

This is so cool and exactly what I'd like to see more of in York. If possible I'd definitely like it to be bigger though and with friends :-)

Love the idea of a mural featuring a shiny green tansy beetle. What a fabulous project to support!

The ings around York are home to most Tansy beetles in the whole of UK. What a great way to celebrate their survival and also raise awareness to protect their environment from further degradation.

Super idea, bringing nature to all, and the Tansy beetle I have heard a lot about, working at the University for many years.
