False Potato Beetle

Hi Logan,
This appears to be a False Potato Beetle,
Leptinotarsa juncta, but it might be another member of the genus.  According to BugGuide:  “Similar to Colorado Potato Beetle, but elytral punctures are regular instead of irregular. Also, a brown stripe at the center of each elytron (wing cover) and on the inner edge of each elytron (where they meet down the middle) distinguish this species.”
