Leaf beetle (Chrysomelidae family).
Yes, about a dozen mimicry pairs are known. To complicate further, also some other Diabroticine Leaf beetles, and some Flea beetles show Diabrotica mimic patterns.
Looking at all Lema sp. I think these beetles are quite nasty Diabrotica mimics ;-)
cf. Lema sp. (mimic)
I agree with bayucca
In my eyes, also a Diabrotica sp.
