Passionflower Flea Beetle--Larvae - Disonycha discoidea

Passionflower Flea Beetle--Larvae - Disonycha discoidea
Parkwood, Durham County, North Carolina, USA
June 20, 2005
Size: 8 mm
All of the adults on my Passiflora lutea seem to have disappeared a couple of weeks ago--then, these showed up. (I'm presuming these are the larvae of the beetles, a reasonable assumption, I hope.) There are many larvae on the undersides of the leaves. I hope to catch one pupating next.
