Yellow and brown-striped beetle - Cryptocephalus

Yellow and brown-striped beetle - Cryptocephalus
Los Olivos, Santa Barbara County, California, USA
October 14, 2010
Size: approx 5 mm
Found just under the flowers of scale-broom.

Moved from Cryptocephalus.

Moved from ID Request.

Cryptocephaline leaf beetle
is my guess.

Not an expert but...
...take a look at Cryptocephalus alternans as a possibility.

Best match I saw
but another is C. spurs*us

E.G. Riley says: "alternans, spurcus or cerinus"
