The little red bettle

A quick post about a curious red beetle.

Upon walking the downs around Oxford,  I came across this fascinating red beetle. I am unsure of what he is, at first I thought him  Cardinal Beetle, but the shape and head are wrong, next I though a Net winged beetle but again the head is wrong as is the wing case. This spot of brilliant red remains a mystery to me, should anyone know what it is I would love to know.
