They are sometimes called the Metallic Lady Beetles. I can't ID species in this genus outside North America, I wish I could get a species name for you!
Abigail, Thanks fo the Id !Do you know any common name for the Genus Curinus ?
This appears to be genus Curinus. It is not Axion tripustulatum; that species does not occur in Brazil, is not blue and metallic, and has spots on the elytra, not the pronotum.
