I can see how it is the clay-colored Leaf beetle because of the grey coloration on the thorax and the lighter elytra color, thanks for the correct ID Gaia80.

Thank you both. Looking at both suggestions it's not the Reddish Potato Beetle. Clay-colored Leaf Beetle looks like a good bet.

To me it's very similar to Clay-colored Leaf Beetle, But I might be wrong.

From these angles it seems to be a reddish potato beetle.
