Trirhabda canadensis (Kirby, 1837)EditArthropods (Arthropoda)----Insects (Insecta)----Beetles (Coleoptera)----Polyphaga----Chrysomeloidea----Leaf beetles (Chrysomelidae)----Galerucinae----Trirhabda----T. canadensis
The Trirhabda sp. beetles can easily be recognized by a basic shape and pattern; all members of the genus have it. Typical patterns in the genus other than striped species include a basic all one colour pattern(such as grey or even a bright metallic green) with a yellow border. The Goldenrod leaf beetle can be seperated from similar yellow and black striped species by the much wider yellow stripes and smaller spots on the pronotum and head.
