Lebia ornata
Nice habitus shot. Be aware of the southern dark morph of this species that has relatively immaculate dark elytra. Recently I was perplexed by one specimen from MS that showed only faint posterior pale macules, rest of elytra completely dark! This highly variable species also has pronota that are colored completely pale to mostly dark with pale margins.

Can you look through the images
in the guide in the genus Lebia here and help with or correct any of the ID's there?
