Orange Bordered Beetle on Tibetan Gentian ( Qin Jiao )

orange bordered beetle on Tibetan Gentian

Most web listings I found on-line, list Tibetan Gentian as very rare plant, this one grows happily outside the gift shop at the farm. Originating from the foothills of the Himalayan Mountains of Western China and Tibet, ” Qin Jiao ” has been used in eastern medicine for centuries.

I am having a bit of difficulty getting a positive ID on the bettle, the closest on e I have found is Largus californicus, but it’s markings are a little different. http://bugguide.net/node/view/243552
