A strange subgroup of Click beetles, long time believed to belong elsewhere:

Body shape seems wrong for a tortoise beetle and seems too shiny for a click beetle. Not too great at beetle ID myself though.

Any idea what this is?It looks like a collapsed tortoise beetle to me! Could be one of those glowing click beetles?
