Chrysomelidae/Hispinae, I confirm! For beetles of Indonesia, www.beetle-diversity.com is helpful.

cheers! Boris

Thank you Latimeria. .. and now, I think it is a leaf beetle (fam)

maybe a member of sub-fam of Hispinae

I don't think it's a darkling beetle, its rough elytra and feet don't look right. It almost looks like a tortoise beetle, but it's not that either...I know I've come across one of these in a book before, but I can't remember what it was.

Also, you should remove it from the Lost Ladybug Project, since it's not a ladybug.

Jawa Tengah, Indonesia
