Common Sun Beetle - Amara aenea

Common Sun Beetle - Amara aenea
Hioaks Rd, City of Richmond County, Virginia, USA
February 28, 2012
Size: 6-8mm

Moved tentatively
Moved from subgenus Amara.

Moved
Moved from Flea Beetles.

This looks more like a ground beetle to me
Maybe Amara?

 
Is it the Common Sun Beetle?
Is it the Common Sun Beetle? First three antenea are pale.

 
Sounds like the correct ID.
I'll move it unless anyone disagrees.

 
Yes, consistent with "Amara aenea"
and best choice if I had to guess. Will see if others are compelled to grant this one a species page.
