Click me to see the bug in question
I've looked through lots of pictures of bugs and can't identify this at all. There's a few similar but not the exact one. I know it's a long shot, but are there any entomologists on here or anyone with an interest in entomology that can identify it?

Pardon the pun, but it's bugging me now.

I used to work in the Entomology Dept at Liverpool Museum. I'm inclined to say that it's the Rosemary Beetle:

It would appear to be rather unpopular with gardeners:

Darned things have come out to mate and devastate your plants. Usually seen in the South since early 1990s. They will have your rosemary plants too. I hope they don't find mine!

They are absolutely stunning beetles but they just decimate everything! I'm trying to find out what caterpillars we have in the back as a couple of our plants are just sticks now - the leaves have been stripped completely.

Little buggers!! Only trouble is, you never see the little fookers!

Soon as this rain stops I am out looking for these bugs - we have a dozen Rosemary bushes in the garden (and sage and lavender). Pretty the bugs may be (sure are) but my Mrs likes her Rosemary bushes - boils sprigs of it to make a hair rinse for use after swimming.

I guess the bugs will surrender to a standard insecticde. Spraying the lavender is OK but not the sage (we eat that) or the rosemary. If they succumb to a simple pyrethrum insecticide that will be ok because it decomposes after a day or so

I believe you can't use any on the lavender as it kills the bees off frown It's not very often they're seen down here. The person whose garden they have destroyed lives down south so you may well be safe Snod wink

Most (almost all) of my lavender flowers have been clipped for drying - just the leaves left, so no danger to the bees
