Best to leave at Alticini - the punctuations on the elytra are striolate (in distinct longitudinal lines): this appears to be uncharacteristic of Altica (https://biotaxa.org/Zootaxa/article/view/zootaxa.3918.4.3), and more like Arsipoda, but the tribe is pretty large. Chris Reid at the AM would be the best authority on this.

I agree - Alticini but not Altica.
