Description:

We found this character just below the Bernia mountain near Calpe in Spain. It resembled an old pal called Clytra 4-punctata but has 6-punctata.
Brief joy - I discovered Lachnaia sexpunctata but wait, there are about 6 other Lachnaia beetles all with 6-punctata including L. pubescens, L. cylindrica, L. tristigma, L. paradoxa, et al. Drat!
I don't THINK L. sexpunctata lives in Spain but L. pubescens does. What about the others, though?
Anyone get to species level on this guy, please?
