Pentatomidae, Eurydema ornata. You get almost every color combination you want... Although it is called shieldbug it is actually a stink bug, in UK they call them all shield bugs. I prefer shield bug for Scutelleridae, the other family of the superfamily Pentatomoidea.

Beautiful!! So colorful, thank you for sharing, Ricardo Salgueiro.
