Moved
Moved from Calligrapha multiguttata.

While trying to ID and confirm Mexican photo records of Calligrapha, I spotted a Mex. specimen apparently different from multiguttata, but at first look alike this one.
The Mex. photo turned out to be a third species, this one keyed to C. ancoralis with Gómez-Zurita (2015).
I have contacted the author, who told that interbreeding occurs within Calligrapha, so always there will be some completely-off specimens.

The Calligrapha here has not the typical pattern of ancoralis, but is completely within the range of variation.
Furthermore, AZ records of C.ancoralis are known from Sta.Cruz county.

 
"AZ records of C. ancoralis are known from Sta.Cruz county."
really? C. ancoralis isn't listed in Riley et al. (2003) (1)

 
confirmation
May be rather recent knowledge, Mike!
Gómez-Zurita (2015) lists a handful of records from his revisionary studies, more than one near Sta.Cruz.
