What's That Bug? does not endorse extermination

yellow and black bug
We found this little bug while camping in the mountains of West Virginia in August, and would like to include the pictures in my sons’ insect photo collection. However, we haven’t seen anything similar in our field guides. It is about the size of a ladybug, but the coloring is different. The picture shows it perched on my son’s swimsuit. thanks for your help and for your great website!

This is a species of Leaf Beetle in the Family Chrysomelidae. Though we arene’t sure of the species, we can direct you to BugGuide which has 100’s of photos of Leaf Beetles.
