This is same Indian Tortoise beetle.. Common in Western ghats and its parallel ranges in Kokan hills.

:( No luck. It looks like Atul has the same/similar spotting but he doesn't have an ID yet either. Here's the link You may want to watch it from time to time to see if he gets an ID later.

Ok ...Thank you .
