Beware of this beetle!
Look out for these little beetles on your lilies. They eat the plants and then lay their young which then eat anything left. The young are difficult to see as they look like little brown blobs on the underside of leaves. However you will find a fat little grub in the blob.
I’ve also found them on fritilleries. I’ve found 9 in the last 2 days. I don’t usually have much trouble with them and definitely not this early.
