Hello, I was recently on a study abroad course to the VI and took a few pictures of the insect I found there. I haven’t been able to find any resources on identifying what I found (especially since I only have a few pictures instead of pined specimens). If there is any chance you could identify this bug for me?

Dear Brandon,
The closest match we were able to find to your individual is this image on FlickR of
Euryderma ventralis, but the markings are different.  Perhaps one of our readers will have better luck.
