Ravenous Leaf Beetle? - Orsodacne atra

Ravenous Leaf Beetle? - Orsodacne atra
Eugene, Lane County, Oregon, USA
November 16, 2019
Fast beetle found on a metal railing at the park. It looks a lot like Orsodacne atra, the Ravenous Leaf Beetle. The size is right. I can't remember it off hand, but when I saw it I remember it was the same size as other Ravenous Leaf Beetles I've seen in the past. Compared to all the other examples, it seems REALLY late in the year for it to appear. It's not just a single instance, either, as I found another one (albeit slightly different coloration) a few days later.
