Beetle? - Disonycha procera

Beetle? - Disonycha procera
Paul Douglas FP, Cook County, Illinois, USA
August 19, 2006
Size: ~1cm

Moved from Disonycha pensylvanica.

It is not pensylvanica, because legs partly red.
Both procera and uniguttata may lack a pronotal macula - but the latter as exception,
while in eastern populations of procera, it occurs frequently (Blake 1934).
The main point, however: No costae in females of D. uniguttata!

Moved from Disonycha.

Disonycha pensylvanica.
Disonycha pensylvanica.

It agrees well with Disonycha species a in the guide - not safely identified yet (pennsylvanica?).

think it is a flea beetle.
