Chrysomelidae, Cassidinae, Cassidini, Microctenochira cf. vivida.
That was a hard one. I first thought it is a Charidotis sp., but the little triangle behind the pronotum looks different there (namly black). I am pretty sure it is a Microctenochira sp. and the closest one I found is Microctenochira vivida.
