Thank-you Adarsha! The patterns on the elytra remind me of Indian or Persian calligraphy.

Thanks for the favorites! :) I think the species in genus Calligrapha is correct. If anyone has a guide to this genus that would be great. Apparently the host plant plays an important role in spp. I believe there are approximately 80 species in this genus.
