Leaf Beetle
Trirhabda attenuata


Trirhabda attenuata in
            Utah

I knew immediately this was a Trirhabda species
because I had seen
them before, but I didn't know if this
one was any different. It was
 identified in Bugguide as
Trirhabda attenuata.  Their host plant is
rabbitbrush. I had to shoot this photo from a distance, hence the poor
resolution.
