Leaf Beetle spotted by John B. Palauig, Central Luzon, Philippines an hour ago

Coleoptera; Chrysomelidae; Eumolpinae; Unidentified Eumolpinae. I have displayed three photos in order to demonstrate that this Leaf Beetle exists in at least three metallic, iridescent colours, bronze, green and blue. To achieve this, I had to break the rules of Project Noah and I am prepared to withdraw this spotting if necessary. One of the rules is that pictures must all be of the same spotting. When I checked through my pictures of this beetle, I did not have all three colours photographed in the same place and on the same day. The best I could do was to pick out three photos taken in the same place, but on three different dates. In that way, I was able to show the three colours, all ,of which are quite common in this area. Just to keep everything above board, the dates of the pictures are: Bronze - Aug 22, 2017. Green - May 29, 2020. Blue - Jun 22, 2016. The reason for all this is that I think I have many pictures of Colasposoma viridicoeruleum Motschulsky, 1860 which is not recorded present in Philippines.

Toirtoise Beetle favorited by Jae Palauig, Central Luzon, Philippines an hour ago

Chrysomelidae; Cassidinae; Cassida circumdata Herbst, 1799. This beautiful iridescent beetle has many variations of colouring and pattern. Sometimes they are so elaborate that I find myself checking in case I have taken a photo of a subspecies
