what chrysomelid experts say
Dr Gilbert: "It does look like Stenopodius to me, but I have not seen Stenopodius from this far north in California. And I have not seen these markings on flavidus. If it is flavidus the host would be a record. Possibly a new species?"

Dr Clark: "Yes, the beetle is definitely Stenopodius. Unfortunately, I can't help to identify the species. I have a horribly difficult time separating the species in this genus."

Moved, suspect flavidus as well!
Moved from Beetles.
