Thanks Leuba, Sergio & Maria!
There's actually a little bit of a story here - I was complaining to Lisa that I'm always turning over "holey" leaves but never find the culprits underneath. I turned over a very nibbled upon morning glory leaf & hey presto, I found this little guy! It was the first time either of us have seen one.
