Chrysomelid beetle? - Cryptocephalus schreibersii
Carver, Plymouth County, Massachusetts, USA
October 13, 2016
This sort of seems like a Colaspis sp. but then it also doesn't quite match, I looked through many photos and the punctations seem off. Can anyone confirm? Netted in mowed pine barrens (scrub oak, Baptisia, asters, goldenrod, etc.).

Moved tentatively
Moved from Tinctus group.

Moved from Cryptocephalus.

Moved, Cryptocephalus sp.
Funny, when I first saw the thumbnail I also thought Colaspis but then when I saw the actual image I ruled that out.

Moved from ID Request.

I looked through Cryptocephalus twice but they seemed too colorful and too boxy. The punctations seem right though.
