The left one is Anthonomus rubi. What about his colleague ?
I saw them in October 2004, near Vijlen, on Tanacetum vulgare.

Thanks to you both.

I thought of Chloropidae but I hesitated because the ones you find illustrated in books mostly are yellowish ( the Merozyma sp. ).

The large ocellar triangle is a definite give-away for the family.
