Plastic Coated Beetle
October 2, 2009
I found this Beetle in August 2005 in Alamos Sonora, there are many unusual insects around at that time of the year because of the monsoon rains. This was the only time I ever saw this species. I’ve researched it a few times since but with no luck in finding out what it was.

Dear Mark,
We matched your photo to that of the Mottled Tortoise Beetle, Deloyala guttata, which is pictured on BugGuide.
