Fairly small beetle with green eyes. Coccinellidae family? This species eats leaves. While most Coccinellidae eat insects, there are some that eat leaves.


Photographed in overgrown urban area.


There seems to be some sort of relationship between this beetle species and ants. On several occasions I have observed ants interacting with this beetle. The final photo is a different individual photographed at a different time, but I wanted to show the beetle's backside to have a complete picture. Note there is an ant interacting with the beetle in this photo also.
