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?

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.
