Since I have some questions about this one, I'm posting my shots.
Note the orange pterostigma. Same individual as Stephen Creswell's, moved to a different background and length measured:

Dr. Kevin Hoffman, author of genera Dicromantsispa, Leptomantsispa, etc., informs me via e-mail (11/21/08) that these are, in fact, Leptomantsispa pulchella.
