Paropsisterna sp. (Poss decolorata)
A small tortoise beetle with finely tessellated patterns on the back and spectacular flaring from the base of the elytra.
In a nature reserve
The five vertical lines on the pronotum are a form that is consistently different to the typical 'decolorata'. The two dots on the elytra half way to the apex are odd. In the case of Paropsisterna minerva, simlar dots are definitive for that species.
