Three tips for gaining species ID...
If at all possible, get a side shot, showing the hood.

Provide info on the plant it's on, if known. (Some of these bugs are named for the plant.)

Mention whether your find was solo or part of a colony.

Note that we have a really good expert on these, but she doesn't visit often.
