Eight-spotted Flea Beetle - Omophoita cyanipennis

Eight-spotted Flea Beetle - Omophoita cyanipennis
Mission, Hidalgo County, Texas, USA
October 20, 2004
I've had this beetle identified as Omophoita cyanipennis octomaculata, but I don't see any place in the guide for it. Does anyone know the common name?

Common name?
Octomaculata translates as "Eight-spotted." That's what I call mine...
