Subject: Chrysomelidae in Spain
April 19, 2017 6:29 am
I would like to know the name of this bug I saw in the Cantabrian region (north of Spain) last week. I’ve searched through lots of websites and the only information I got is that it could be from the Chrysomelidae family.
I appreciate your help!
We tried, unsuccessfully, to identify this distinctive looking Leaf Beetle in the family Chrysomelidae. Perhaps one of our readers will have better luck than we have had.
PS. I love your site
Plantain Leaf Beetle identification thanks to Karl
Hello Daniel and Claudia:
This distinctive beetle is Oedionychus cinctus (Family Chrysomelidae: Subfamily Galerucinae: Tribe Alticini). The common name appears to be Plantain Flee Beetle, and its distribution is Portugal, Spain and southern France. Regards, Karl
