I'm hoping that this is Pachybrachis trinotatus.

specimens cited by Mike Quinn
Yes; I spent a lot of time at Brackenridge Field Station in Austin, TX, during my graduate school days there, and I went on a lot of field trips around the SW USA for my dissertation when at Texas A&M University. While in Austin I became interested in new vs. old growth feeders, and did research on sesiids and caterpillars, beginning my work on Asterocampa in the Dept. Entomol. at TAMU.

 
good to meet you!
I always enjoyed finding your spmns in var. collections.

Moved
Hi Tim, I believe these might be some spmns you previously collected??

Moved to Pachybrachis sp. for expert identification.
Moved from Beetles.
