Your letter to the bugman: This little beetle was found by my friend, and neither of us can identify it. It’s approximately 5mm long and was found on a bean-like plant.
How you want your letter signed: RobynB.
Dear Robyn B.,
This is a Leaf Beetle in the family Chrysomelidae. We located this image of Lema solani on BugGuide that looks like a match to us, but it feeds on members of the nightshade family, not on beans.
