Worn Mulsantina picta? - Myzia subvittata

Worn Mulsantina picta? - Myzia subvittata

Size: ca 8-10 mm
Beat from fir tree. I think this is probably a very worn M. picta?

Much larger than Mulsantina, right?
Moved from Lady Beetles.

Mulsantina is not nearly so rounded in a side profile, so that can help. The rimmed elytra might remind one more of Anatis, but the colouration rules that out too.

 
Thanks -
James and Blaine! Yes, I guess it was too large for Mulsantina, I don't have enough experience with M. picta to have that gestalt in my head - should have looked it up..

how about Myzia subvittata?

 
Ah -
interesting, never heard of that species.
