Your spotting has been nominated for the Spotting of the Week. The winner will be chosen by the Project Noah Rangers based on a combination of factors including: uniqueness of the shot, status of the organism (for example, rare or endangered), quality of the information provided in the habitat and description sections. There is a subjective element, of course; the spotting with the highest number of Ranger votes is chosen. Congratulations on being nominated!

Chrysomelidae, Cassidinae, Laccoptera sp. and might be Laccoptera nepalensis, but I am not 100% sure, that's why I put a "cf.".

I do not think it is Laccoptera (Sindiola) meghalayaensis from Assam:
