Leaf beetle

Stilodes belti

Description:

Chrysomelidae beetle, though it has Calligrapha type markings, it may belong to another genus.

Notes:

Strong resemblance to the specimen identified as Leptinotarsa belti in Biologia Centrali-Americana, vol VI, pt 1, tab 13, #18. This reference is more than 100 years old, and the nomenclature has evolved with time. I haven't been able to track down what the modern name of this species may be. http://www.sil.si.edu/digitalcollections...

Must ge this one, I did not found another similar one. Name might still be the same depending on the source, Leptinotarsa belti or Stilodes belti.
