Moved from Mordella mexicana.

 
yup,
nice correction, and new species of for BG

Moved
Moved from Mordellini.

suspect M. mexicana
this one appears very similar to your previous Mordella mexicana, det. by Dr. Jackman. Information on this species appears scarce, and it is not included in the ITIS database, nor Liljeblad's ref.

 
Might well be M. mexicana
but there were a number of them that were similar w/o any intermediate forms... Thanks, Mike

 
M. mexicana
The other critters that I was think these might be was Paramordellaria carinata (Smith) but I think your right about them being M. mexicana. Paramordellaria carinata is a variable sp., but none of the variations are close to this critter. Thanks, Mike
