Unknown Hispine - Microrhopala vittata

Unknown Hispine - Microrhopala vittata
Omaha, Douglas County, Nebraska, USA
May 24, 2013
Size: About 6mm
Orange head and pronotum. Elytra black, each with an orange stripe running almost the entire length. Found on a Goldenrod leaf.

Moved from ID Request.

There's one often found on Goldenrod
but we know it's a tough group

That would be the obvious choice. I guess I should have spent a couple of minutes looking it up. Do you think it is safe to move to Microrhopala?
