Chrysomelid - Zeugophora abnormis

Chrysomelid - Zeugophora abnormis
Bow River, Calgary, Alberta, Canada

Size: 5 mm
Syneta sp.? Taken from riparian vegetation along the river; sorry about the bad condition of the specimen- this was collected and mounted long before I started pointing my small stuff (will frass if necessary).

Thanks Rob
it sure looks like it....seems to be rare- I have not found subsequent specimens since...

Zeugophora abnormis
I think this is Zeugophora abnormis. Compare with a type specimen here

Thanks...but
now I feel bad for it as I didn't realize it was something uncommon- will see whether I can find another specimen this season.

 
you should feel bad more often, Tim :)
you routinely collect very nice stuff, well worth meticulous preservation -- and cleaning, too.
i always tried to clean every interesting specimen, mechanically (thin paintbrush, 000 ento pins) and/or 'chemically' (by keeping in diluted EtOH or aqueous detergent/soap solution, etc) -- they look pristine after that
