Leaf Beetle (Family Chrysomelidae)

General: Leaf Beetles (Family Chrysomelidae) are an extremely diverse group with some 220 genera and 1,900 species and subspecies in North America. Many species are colorful with various colorful spots and lines.

Adult Leaf Beetles eat living leaves and sometimes flowers. The larvae of many species feed on leaves, but others are subterranean and eat roots and underground stems. Most species feed on only one type of plant, making some species pest on crops and other species useful for controlling weeds.
