A suggested ID for this is Orchamus yersini. Can anyone else confirm or offer an alternative?

It was taken on a tree stump in open woodland habitat, on the island of Rhodes in Greece.

hello Matt,
a nice capture of this more or less camouflaged creature.

Hello Matt
It is an Orchamus specimen for sure. Orchamus yersini is the only species of this genus found in Rhodes. I believe that your identification is correct. Beautiful photo with nice colours and impressive sharpness
