Serpentine grassland, often by rocks. Plants at rosette stage, no flowers. Tip of leave lobes have tiny bright orange dots - supposedly to fool butterflies into thinking the leaves already have eggs so they don't stop and lay more on the leaves.

This beetle is small. From memory I think it was about 5mm long. It resembles Erotylidae.
