Flea beetle (scale in mm). Possibly Longitarsus pellucidus, a species commonly found on Convolvulus arvensis but also on Calystegia sepium. Earlier I had suggested it might be Longitarsus exoletus. For a more authoritative picture of L. pellucidus, try www.biol.uni.wroc.pl/cassidae/European%20Chrysomelidae/lo… . In addition, www.colpolon.biol.uni.wroc.pl/longitarsus.htm gives a gallery of Longitarsus species to compare.

Found on Bindweed, probably Hedge Bindweed (Calystegia sepium) but possibly Large Bindweed (Calystegia sylvatica). 30 September 2010, Shawford, near Winchester, UK.
