Hi, I found this beetle in my car this morning. It looked exactly like a Ladybug but spotless and with an iridescent golden color. For what I’ve seen it’s not a Tortoise Beetle, so what could it be?

Tortoise Beetle

Dear Gabriela,
This is not a Lady Beetle.  It is a Leaf Beetle in the family Chrysomelidae, probably one of the Tortoise Beetles.  Alas, we did not have any luck locating matching images on the internet.

  1. Hi again,
    It seems that it is indeed a ladybug, Cycloneda devestita.
