yellow, red, white beetle - Paranapiacaba connexa

yellow, red, white beetle - Paranapiacaba connexa
Corpus Christi, Nueces County, Texas, USA
January 5, 2007
approximately the same size as a spotted cucumber beetle, which was nearby.

Same genus, too!
This is something in the genus Diabrotica, but in Texas there seems to be an infinite number of species (or color variations).

 
Formerly Diabrotica, now: Paranapiacaba
Boy, if that ain't a mouthfull!!! Mike

Good looking
Sorry don't know what you have there, but wanted to say it is a beautiful insect. I'm interested in what it is.

 
Thanks, I am too!
