Tortoise Bettle (Molting)

Description:

The two are on the abaxial surface of unknown (for me) plants species. Spotted at the same places with http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/904.... That what make me think that this one is an early stage of their life cycle (golden tortoise beetle).

Habitat:

Lowland green area - savanna like (old agricultural area) - dominated by shrubs and Penisetum also some kind of grass.

Notes:

This is spotted for Urban Biodiversity (as what I've did with my previous spotting) because they are inside my campus, but please note that there are several large green area. I hope its not a problem!
