Three-lined potato beetle

Lema daturaphila

Description:

A little beetle I found on a purple passionflower (Passiflora incarnata; http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/183...).

Habitat:

Bugguide.net says they feed on members of Solanaceae (e.g., potatoes), but they were all over these passionflowers that day.
