Leaf beetle

Family Chrysomeliade


This extraordinary beetle has unpigmented areas in the elytra which allow to see its internal parts. (By the way, this is my 3000th spotting).

Thank you for the nice comments, my friends. Birdlady6000, I don't know what happened, because I saved the pink tortoise beetle AFTER I uploaded the beetle. Anyway, it is too late to change now, I'll let the beetle as official 3000th. :-)
