Hi,
This is a beetle from Amber Mountain (Montagne d’Ambre) National Park in Madagascar. I would appreciate any help with identification. It was a diurnal species.

Dear Glenn,
We believe this is a Leaf Beetle in the family Chrysomelidae.  When we tried searching for orange Leaf Beetles from Madagascar and we found this unidentified stock image number 18955051 on Stock Photo that looks like a good match.

Hi, Daniel –
Thanks so much for the prompt reply about this beautiful beetle. The stock image you sent does indeed look to be the same beetle.
