Tortoise Beetle

Deloyala sp.

Description:

Three individuals, a pair mating, and, some distance away, another single individual. I believe that one to be female as it matches the coloration of what I assume is the female of the mating pair.

Beautiful series!

Thank you for the kind comments and suggestions.

Ashish and bayucca, both your suggestions seem like good matches - I'm not sure we can really know which it is from these photos ...
