What's That Bug? does not endorse extermination

Hello
I was wondering if you could tell me what the attached bug is. We are in our late 50’s and have never seen this bug before. It is on our morning glory vines in Oklahoma. The gold spots are very bright.
Thanks for any information.
Gary

Hi Gary,
You have a photo of a Mottled Tortoise Beetle, Deloyala guttata. The species is often found on the foilage of Morning Glories. They are also called Gold Beetles by some people.
