Moved from Cryptocephalus tinctus. ID'd from specimen, now a photo-voucher. Thanks Tom, a new species for my reference collection.

Note the furrowed appearance of the pronotum, which is distinctly punctured in C. tinctus. Host of Cryptocephalus schreibersii is recorded as Pinus.

Nice work Brad, thanks!
