Lygaeus equestris

blackredI think this is what this is. Quite a fine-looking red and black bug with strong markings. Two of them spotted so far this month, attracted to sunny outer walls. I can’t find a common name for them, so will have to make do with the Latin. They feed on plant juices (which?). Don’t seem to be a serious pest.
