I stumbled across this lovely site tonight, and was very please to finally figure out what little bug I found in my backyard. I thought it was a variation of a ladybug I had never seen before, but between your site and bugguide.net that was referenced in an article here, I have narrowed it down to being a Leaf Beetle in the Calligrapha Vicina category. Although it is not great quality, I thought I would pass along the picture I was able to take with my phone before the beetle took off. I found this in SouthEastern Ontario in mid July 2010.
Congratulations on your being successful in the identification of this Leaf Beetle in the genus Calligrapha.
