Found in wooded area in Kansas. Larger than Ladybug.
This is a really gorgeous image of an Argus Tortoise Beetle, Chelymorpha cassidea, which we identified on BugGuide. According to BugGuide: “Eggs laid in clusters of 15-30 on leaves. Larvae feed on leaves, carry frass on back. Overwinters as adult.”
