Cucumber Beetle?
None of the ones I've ever seen have well defined stripes like the cucumber beetle, they all look like this.

 
I´m confused...

these beetles are the striped cucumber beetles. You can find them in the guide here. This specimen is a bit unusual in that it is darkened in the middle.
