Still learning things....I´m sure there is still a lot of work to be done in the fleabeetles in the guide. btw where did the picture that was originally in Capraita circumdata go now?

Moved from Beetles.

Flea Beetle,
I think. Nice photo.

Thanks Graham!
I'll have a look and see if I can find a match. I should have noticed the rear legs.

Capraita thyamoides?
Looks like Capraita, and possibly this one . Even has the hind femur darkened apically. But wait for Rob or others to confirm. Dillon2 shows a C. quercata (Fab.) that also looks similar. note: many of these formerly placed in genus Oedionychus

Capraita thyamoides
Tim is right, this is Capraita thyamoides. Also compare here

Tim, Rob...
Thanks for the ID.
