Discomorpha conspersipennis


Hi, can you help me identify this friend. I found it near my house, but I'm not sure if it's part of the Cassidinae family and I do not have the ID.

Yes, it is a tortoise beetle (a beautiful one, by the way), family Chrysomeliade, tribe Cassidini. Unfortunately I can't tell the species or genus.
