Please identify this beetle

Julio, could you please provide the date on which this photo was taken?

You can simply reply with the date below my comment here and an editor can update the entry...or if you know how to edit your BugGuide posts, you can enter the date info yourself. Location and time of activity are important biological data that BugGuide provides for those who study the distribution and seasonal timing of insect life cycles.

BTW, the somewhat distended abdomen makes it likely this is a gravid female.

Moved from Trirhabda.

Comments for post below apply equally well for your post here:

Moved for expert attention & cropped
Moved from ID Request.
