Chrysomelid larvae

Recommended Posts

Chrysomelids are almost never kept. I've only seen larvae of a few different species a few times in my life. These are from the biggest species in my area (1/2"). This is a '"common" species but I'm not certain I've ever seen the larvae before except in photos. Last time I found some chrysomelid larvae was about ten years ago. They were on a small cottonwood or aspen tree and I went back to grab some the next day, but something had eaten them.

Collected some leaves for the second generation false potato beetles and collected one of these: Plagiometriona clavata - Clavate Tortoise Beetle. It's relatively tiny but interesting. No larvae though.
