Juvenile Dicromantispa interrupta…
Nice find, Jerry.

See reference here:

Consider Leptomantispa?
To me, this shows some characters characteristic of Leptomantispa pulchella:

such as the broadly-angled pterostigma, the overall coloration, and the thick brown bar on the head. Not enough detail to see hairs on the pronotum, unfortunately.

I do not see the interrupted line of D. interrupta.
(I am not a professional entomologist, but I have looked at a lot of photos of this group, and corresponded with experts on the ID characters.)

Looks like Leptomantispa
but plz wait for an expert.
