@LaurenZarate
All the Tessaratomids are large. This one was about 25mm in length. This individual, http://www.flickr.com/photos/itchydogima..., remains the largest I have seen at 30mmx15mm.

Thanks for the ID suggestion. The ID status of this spotting is a Hispine Beetle (Cassidinae (formerly Hispinae), Chrysomelidae).

This unfortunately caterpillar finally has a name. It is the larva of the White Commodore (Parasarpa dudu, Nymphalidae).

Sinobug Bug / Beetle

@AgnesAdiqueTalavera
A very interesting and relevant reference. It certainly explains the differences between acewings.ajay's spotting and my suggestion as being locational. Interestingly then, I wonder why/if nymphal appearance is not used to distinguish the species considering they are visible differences as opposed to microscopic in the adults. But the good news, acewings.ajay, is that you have an ID - Erthesina acuminata.

Sinobug Bug / Beetle
Bug / Beetle commented on by Sinobug Maharashtra, India8 years ago

It is a true bug/shield bug nymph, not a beetle. Very similar to a Yellow Marmorated Stink Bug nymph, Erthesina fullo, except for the colors so suspect it is related......

It is an extraordinary genus of pyralids. I have other angles from other occasions.....

It certainly matches in every respect, including the subtle pale spot adjacent to the wing outline. This butterfly is recorded as flying in Northern Vietnam and Taiwan (similar latitudes), but I have never seen one.
