Field Notes
We were assessing the abundance of purple loosestrife in this site that has been mowed annually the last 2 years. While we were looking at the loosestrife, we saw 4 of these beetles and also some small white looking eggs, but we had a hard time getting a really good photo.
Supporting Evidence

Here is a photo showing the evidence of herbivory. These have that shothole pattern that Galerucella leaves.

If you zoom in on this I think you can see that it has an orange stripe. I hope to get a better photo in the next few days.
