Golden Tortoise Beetle

Aspidimorpha sanctaecrucis



Seen at Alathur, Palakkad District, Kerala, India.


One of the most surprising insect sightings. My camera was unable to reproduce the dazzling golden sheen that I saw. And this specimen was more than double the size of the ones I have seen twice in the past. Please see video at
