Description:

Leaf beetle (Chrysomelidae).

Notes:

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...

This is a Lema sp., possible Lema biannularis (different subfamily!)

There exist several mimic pairs between Lema, and Diabrotica.
