Found these in my backyard in Malaysia. You have a beautiful collection of tortoise beetles on your site and I thought perhaps you might like to add these.

Tortoise Beetle:  Cassida circumdata

Dear AJ,
Thanks for sending in photos of these two pretty Tortoise Beetles.  We will try to get species identifications when we have a free moment.

Tortoise Beetle:  Chiridopsis scalaris

  1. I have to weaken the ID of the first:
    It may rather be Cassida catenata (Boheman, 1855) – a very similar species, widespread in the Malaian region. Though both are really variable in pattern, it remains a guess, which one it really is.
