Altica crenicollis Say, 1835, is a species described from Mexico, probably a Disonycha, with 5-spotted pronotum, and rather pale legs: https://www.biodiversitylibrary.org/page/15385259#page/18/mode/1up
It seems, that there exist no types, and identity is unclear - so Blake (1933):

However, D. crenicollis in the interpretations of Horn (1889) and Jacoby (1884), later named D. horni Jacoby, 1891 were found to be synonymized with D. fumata.
Range is all over Mexico:

D. crenicollis may well be identical with D. fumata LeConte, but there is no proof for it, and also no modern records of it.
