On our jungle hike yesterday, we noticed this beetle hanging out with leaf cutter ants on some freshly cut plants. It appears to have very distinct colors, and we hope it will be easy to identify. Thanks for your help!

Dear Lower Dover Field Journal,
You are mistaken. This is not a Beetle. It is a Stink Bug in the family Pentatomidae, but we have not had any luck determining the species. We will try some additional research.
Thanks! If it’s any help it had violet under-wings.
