Disonycha leptolineata texana
Disonycha leptolineata texana. Host plant remains unknown. If it is like the nominate subspecies, Itea is the host.

 
No Itea down here
Thanks John! BTW, Itea does not occur anywhere near here; barely gets into the state of Texas. To my knowledge, we do not even have any plants in that *family* in the LRGV! This individual was photographed on Aloysia gratissima, family Verbenaceae, for whatever that's worth.
