Soldier and sailor beetles

Last month I photographed both of these beetles. The Grey sailor beetles was scrabbling around in a buttercup flower, and probably eating the pollen, and is a sun lover.
The Yellow-tipped malthine is the opposite. It prefers shady locations, and I only spotted it because of the yellow tips to its wings.

Now both are on the Cantharidae page.
