Pigweed Flea Beetle? - Disonycha glabrata

Pigweed Flea Beetle? - Disonycha glabrata
Norris City, White County, Illinois, USA
July 10, 2007
Size: Approx. 1/4 in. long
At first, I thought this might be a striped Cucumber Beetle or maybe a striped Lady Beetle, but as I looked further into the guide, it most matched a Pigweed Flea Beetle. Is this correct?

Moved from Disonycha.

Moved from Disonycha a.

elytral margin black
. . . would indicate Disonycha glabrata - not sure, however, if all images in the guide show the same species.
Sure this is not the species for the moment called "a", in which the elytral margin is pale.

genus o.k.
. . . but don´t know enough to confirm species (sems there are several similar ones).
