Passionflower Flea Beetle

Disonycha discoidea abbreviata


Striking beetle with a red body and vertical black and white striped elytra. The white parts are sparkly


Flooded oak forest


Notes from a bugguide admin who placed my photo in the proper species & subspecies: "Moved from Disonycha leptolineata tentatively. More consistent with series of confirmed specimens than with confirmed leptolineata, or near. - tone of red vivid (orange to scarlet) - vs. pinkish; - red elytral margin wider than outer white stripe - vs. opposite; - shape appearing more ovoid - vs. more parallel."
