Potato beetle larvae eating

Potato beetle larvae on weed

The plant is a member of the potato family, Solanaceae, probably Physalis. The insect larvae on the leaf at the lower left are potato beetles. I well remember them from childhood, when we grew potatoes.

If you want a higher-resolution picture, you can get it by clicking on the picture, then finding the different sizes link, at the right, in the source page. (Free Flickr membership may be required.)

Feb 29, 08. A Flickr commenter says that these are false potato beetles, Leptinotarsa juncta. Oh, well.
