I believe this is the Harlequin Flower Beetle..... - Gymnetis thula

I believe this is the Harlequin Flower Beetle..... - Gymnetis thula
Altamonte Springs, Seminole County, Florida, USA
June 13, 2008
Size: ~20-25mm
This was a great find! I found this early this morning near the end of an open field where I live. I believe I have the ID correct, but would like a second opinion seeing how there are only two other pictures of this species in the guide. I took several pictures that I hope will help with determing if this is male or female, and if there are any other pictures needed I brought this guy home and put him in my bug aquirium so I can get more shots if needed.

We thought the correct name
for this beauty was now G. caseyi, see

Certainly looks like something
in the genus Gymnetis, in the guide here. We're curious to hear what the beetle experts have to say.
