There is another possible contender in Agapanthia villosoviridescens. Not sure if that is in the Northants area. This was by a river bank, in light scrub. Clearly enjoying the plant sap. What do you think?

This wiki pic looks similar. But I know there are many hundreds. The antennae and colour seem good.

I will read up about your suggestion now. Thanks for your help. It is much appreciated. As are your pictures. Please keep posting them.
I think you may be right. The websites where this species is "unmistakable" are mistaken.

Harold
