Comments Off on Black-spotted leaf beetle
This leaf beetle is quite small (about 5mm) but its coloration really makes it stand out. When I went for a walk this morning, I found lots of them on the plants growing alongside the stream that runs through the fields near my home. There were plenty of other leaf beetles too, but I haven’t identified them yet.
Coleoptera: Chrysomelidae (hamushi-ka): Cryptocephalus signaticeps (kuroboshi tsutsuhamushi)
