I found this little guy in the forest 12/25/2010.
black on the back with spikes on it and gold on the other side.
size not more than 1 cm.
It flew from a tree to my friends arm where I took the photo.

This is sure an interesting looking critter. We haven’t the time to research it at this moment, but we want to post your photos. We believe this might be a Leaf Beetle in the family Chrysomelidae.
Update: Spiny Leaf Beetle
Thanks to a comment from Trevor, we have this link to a Spiny Leaf Beetle in the genus Dicladispa.
Thanks Daniel and Trevor for the id, it sure is an interesting looking little guy especially the gold color.
