Flea Beetle - Hemiphrynus intermedius

Flea Beetle - Hemiphrynus intermedius
FSR 118, Apache NF, W of Springerville, Apache County, Arizona, USA
July 8, 2012
Black and orange beetle in pine forest area, elev 8300; appears similar to a Shiny Flea Beetle (Asphaera lustrans), but the eyes and possibly the shape of the elytra seem a bit different.

Moved tentatively
Moved from Flea Beetles.

 
ID confirmed by S.M. Clark

Perhaps
this looks similar to Syphrea Bernardia flea beetle, but shares many similarities with Shiny Flea Beetle (Asphaera lustrans), Aspjaera abdominalis, and Syphrea flavicollis. The antennae look most like the Bernardia; in all the thorax seems different and the abdomen less elongated.

 
Hemiphrynus intermedius, methinks
will ask the Guru
