Nicaraguan Leaf Beetle

Bug ID
I took picture of this in Nicaragua while on vacation, but cannot ID it. I’m an amateur photographer and science educator, and would like to be able to identify this before putting it up on my website. Any clue? Thanks,

Hi Carlos,
All we can say with any certainty is that this is a Leaf Beetle in the family Chrysomelidae, and possibly a Flea Beetle in the tribe Alticini.
