Yes, "helmet bugs" fits well for them. Please, post your photos, I'd love to see them. TBs are in my top 5 favourits list.

I love the many types of tortoise beetles. I used to just call them "Helmet bugs." :-) I have quite a photographic collection. I'm going to have to start posting them. Thanks Sergio.
