Thank you for identifying this bug for me. I have changed the title to reflect the correct name.

Hi Melanie,
Ordinarily I'd send a somewhat out-of-focus image like this to Frass, especially when we already have quite a few better images. Yours is the first submission for Tennessee however, so I'm keeping it to add Tennessee to the data map for this species.

 
your comment
I am sorry, but I don't understand what you are trying to tell me. I don't know what Frass is...

 
Frass is the term for insect droppings.
It is also what we call our section for images not needed for our guide pages. It is one of the clickable tabs below the BugGuide logo at the upper left corner of this page. Images may be sent to Frass by an editor or by the person who submitted the photo.

Once sent to Frass a photo will automatically disappear in 30 days unless it is removed from Frass by an editor or by the person who posted it. Typically, images of lesser quality, of creatures not covered by bugguide, and any from outside the US & Canada bugguide region are sent to Frass.

Looks like the spotted cucumber beetle.
