Flea leaf beetle

Arsipoda montana


Small flea leaf beetle about 6mm long.


On broad acacia leaf in a local nature reserve.


Alticini spp.? Galerucinae ?
I have only ever seen plain black, blue or brown flea leaf beetles before. This one ran down the leaf to the axil and only when reviewing the pictures I noticed the 'other' creature. No idea what it is but it's a strange shape.
Thanks martinl
