Golden Egg Bug

Phyllomorpha laciniata


A tiny thorny bug crawling between the grass. I have never seen it before and have no idea what it is. But thanks to your help now I know it's a Golden egg bug.


Found between short grass near a plant called Paronychia argentea, on a farm in Surman, Libya.


They were two in the same area. Most likely male and female. Check out this clip I found on Youtube:
