Hi! I was gardening in Central New York last Saturday (May 7th) and had a visit from a small gold and black spotted beetle I hadn’t come across before. I am including a photo to help with identification

Your Leaf Beetle is in the genus Calligrapha but we are not sure of the species.
Thank you so much for your research. I appreciate your time and expertise. And on a fun note, I am a calligrapher as another of my hobbies besides gardening, so how appropriate that this beetle should find me!
