Charidotella sexpunctata bicolor
Family: Chrysomelidae. Subfamily: Cassidinae. Tribe: Cassidini (Leaf beetle family). Length: A little less than 1/4 inch (6.35 mm). Appears only gold to the naked eye. Variable in coloring, but this one has a clear type shell over rainbow colors.
In my yard that was turned into meadow. Actually border of meadow/woodlands. Found on a mixture of tangled shrubs. (Morning Glory Family)
I didn't realize these beetles were in my state of Pennsylvania. Looks plain gold to the naked eye because it is so tiny. Found underneath the leaves.
Lat: 40.87, Long: -75.61
