Leaf beetle

Diabrotica sp.


Leaf beetle (Chrysomelidae).


Overgrown urban area.


Very like this spotting: But this one has additional black patches on the lower elytra. I have uploaded a number of very similar beetles which I believe are all Diabrotica sp, in the hopes that someone can help me sort them out down to species level...
