About the size of a dime. The top looks similar to a turtle's shell. Not very fast, but not slow. Disguised itself very well amongst dirt and decomposing plant leaves.


Found in a potted plant.


Noted in the description that the insect is about the size of a dime. Most of the photos were taken on a regular sized paint can lid. The camera's flash was used on the 4th photo.
