Subject: Looks like a bug with an amber encrusted frog on top
Geographic location of the bug: Toronto, Canada
Time: 02:43 PM EDT
Found this bug on my sliding door today. At first I thought a tiny frog was eating a bug, but it looked like it was encrusted in amber. It’s about 1cm in size, maybe smaller. Looking closer at my photos, the shape of the “amber” crust looks too perfect, so maybe it’s just the bug’s shell.
Any idea what this is?

We like your amber-encrusted frog observation as a description of the elytra of this Clavate Tortoise Beetle. All three provided views are gorgeous and illustrative.
