Leaf Beetle in Limon, Costa Rica

I was out photographing birds and sloths when I saw this beetle. I have been unable to locate any matching photos online, so I hope you can help with this one.

Dear Stephen,

This is a Leaf Beetle in the family Chrysomelidae.  We believe we have correctly identified it as Megistomela punctatissima or a closely related species thanks to this image on Flickr.
