Range
Someone might want to change the info page to show the spread to at least NW Pennsylvania.

 
The range info
came from cited sources, so I didn't want to mess with it. I did, however, add a note to the effect that the species seems to have extended its range. If that's not appropriate, I expect that one of the more experienced editors will let me know. :)

 
Range
Here is a good source with a range map showing the whole of New York state covered, and claims it's spread to Michigan and Ohio, with a separate invasion in the Pacific Northwest:

Cornell University, Department of Horticulture "Viburnum Leaf Beetle Citizen Science"

 
Additional info added.
Thanks for sending it along!

no doubt in my mind; good call as always, Ken
so the invader keeps spreading, that's all...

Moved from Leaf Beetles.

Not an ID, but
something in the Galerucinae, maybe? Bears a passing resemblance to Tricholochmaea:



(However, according to the Guide, this particular species makes it only into NE PA--and I wouldn't consider Forest Co. to be NE).

Oh well, let's see what the experts have to say.
