Unknown spotting


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.

Great spotting!
Could you please add it -and other photos of insects from Costa Rica- to the mission "Insects of Costa Rica":
Many thanks and Pura vida!

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.
