Red and blue Beetle - Disonycha politula
Near small stream (Gibb Wash) between Stratton and Alder Washes, Coronado NF, Old Mt. Lemmon Road, S of Oracle, Pima County, Arizona, USA
September 13, 2012
Arid montane area near a small strem, elev. approx 4700 feet. Thanks for your assistance.

Moved tentatively
Moved from Flea Beetles.

Moved from ID Request.

Thank you.
It looks like it could fit with Spinach Flea Beetle (Disonycha xanthomelas), althoughit seems they are mostly in the east. Thanks for your help.

hope the experts chime in [may take time]
the two red-n-blue/green alticines you posted today are very different, but i won't make any guesses at this point. AZ alticine fauna is too rich [you don't need my telling you that!] and unfamiliar to me for my guesses being of any real value
[edit] this one might be Disonycha politula
