Moved, nice addition!
Have a dorsal shot to compliment this 'live' image?

Moved from Leaf Beetles.

Thanks Blaine
Wow, a good one, eh? At the time I had no idea it was uncommon. I shot the caudal view with the thought of sexing it should the need arise as it just did. Does that do it? I would have looked for chilopsis if I had known it's the associated plant. I don't see any munching on any leaves in my images so perhaps it was a random visit to this plant.
