Tropical forest -altitude 1800 mts-
Wow! What an amazing bug!!!

Charidotella sexpunctata is listed as present in the Costa Rica Biodiversity Portal http://www.crbio.cr/portalCRBio/species/...
This is a Tortoise Beetle. I'm not an expert, and not familiar with all the species that may be in Costa Rica, but I'm fairly certain it is a member of the Subgenus Charidotella.http://bugguide.net/node/view/633889
