Colorado Potato Beetle?
May 28, 2009
I found these beetles in a field where I work, in the Dallas, TX area. They were clearly feasting on the leaves of the plants they were on. Are they Colorado Potato Beetles?

Hi Lars,
We are randomly selecting a few letters that were unanswered and posting them.  You are correct.  This is a Colorado Potato Beetle, Leptinotarsa decemlineata, and there is information on the species on Bugguide.
