Grape Colaspis, a leaf beetle, is the most common of its genus. They are considered an agricultural pest, but their damage is not presently considered economically important.
Fittingly, this little guy was found on the leaf of a peppervine, which is a close cousin of grapes and muscadines. Found near the Arkansas River at Cadron Settlement park on a September evening.
