I can confirm Dicladispa sp.The genera of Asian Hispini are often not easy to distinguish. There are several genera with the same "spiny" appearance. This one is a Dicladispa, based on the facts that there are 11 antennal segments, no spines on the antennae and no spines near the fore margin of the pronotum.A key to these genera was given by S.Maulik, almost 100 years ago:http://www.archive.org/stream/coleopterachryso02jacoiala#page/150/mode/2upThe characters in this key are still valid, but two of the genus names have changed: "Hispa" is now Dicladispa, and "Hispella" is now Hispa.
Mark, Martin, thank you so much for the informations
This is certainly a great leaf beetle, AFriyanaWiradikarta . The grubs are leaf miners, eating between the surfaces of leaves, for safety.Here is another link. http://www.whatsthatbug.com/2012/12/05/u...
