Sorry to disagree
Very rare, I do not agree with your identification, but I really think it's a Western Corn Rootworm. I think it is the angle of the photo who don't help.

In A. vittatum, the black bands follow the punctuation lign of the elytra and we notice a strong texture (ponctuation). My specimen does not have the string punctuation, and strips do not perfectly follow the lines of elytra.

Legs mostly black, on A. vittatum, they are yellow and black.

I will add additional pictures so that we can better see the criteria. Thank You!

 
your cropped images are more convinving, thanks
sorry for the error. This is why one should always submit a well-cropped image where the insect fills most of the frame.

 
Thank you!
Thank you very much! I will try to put better cropped image next time. :)
