Leaf beetle, Trirhabda - Xanthogaleruca luteola

Leaf beetle, Trirhabda - Xanthogaleruca luteola
Colorado Springs, El Paso County, Colorado, USA
February 24, 2009
Size: 4 mm
Found in my kitchen sink on 24 Feb 2009. Not more than 4mm in length.
Looks a little like a reticulated beetle in the guide.

Leaf beetle, Trirhabda - Xanthogaleruca luteola Leaf beetle, Trirhabda - Xanthogaleruca luteola Leaf beetle, Trirhabda - Xanthogaleruca luteola

prob. Xanthogaleruca luteola (Müller) -- det. S.M. Clark
Moved from Trirhabda.

I would think something like...
Water-lily Beetle (Galerucella nymphaeae)



But please wait for an expert to comment :)

 
Thanks
That certainly looks close. But I am a long way from any water lillies, in Colorado in February.

 
There is a very similar one on Brittle Bush
That we get a lot in AZ (bush and beetle both) I think it's a Trirhabda, maybe sp. schwarzii See here

 
Sorry...
I used the wrong thumbnail...

Try something like Trirhabda bacharidis. Like Margarethe, I would bet Trirhabda at least. It seems that most images in this genus don't get identified to species.


 
Thanks
Thanks, Ron. That looks really close.
