We have a similar looking genus in North America called Physonota, the tortoise beetles. I'd guess that your spotting is related somehow, but probably not the same species. See for information on one of our tortoise beetles.

Nice photograph by the way--the photography is getting really good on this site and this is a very nice photograph. Congrats.
