Moved from Alphina glauca.

Calyptoproctus marmoratus
Lois O'Brien has uncovered for us a hard-to-obtain publication that confirms that the southeastern species is the same one that Dozier (1926) recorded from MS. It is separable from the Arizona Alphina glauca only by the spotted thorax, so this specimen from TX appears to be the eastern rather than the western species.

The generic placement of both species is doubtful at present.

 
I agree - Very Good Point!
Polk Co., TX would be "Gulf Coast" or Southeastern climatically and vegetatively.

neat insect!!
