Tortoise Beetle


Mostly brown, but partially transparent shell. Small antennae protrude from under the shell (photo 4). I thought it was Charidotella sexpunctata, but a couple people on bugguide said they thought it might be some other genus.

Now "that" Tortoise Beetle actually looks like a tortoise. Looks like a Cheridotella <> but that is obviously just a guess. Nice spotting Machi.
