Golden-Coloured Tortoise Beetle (Aspidomorpha sp.; Cassidinae)

An extremely beautiful Tortoise Beetle, especially when it flies around under the morning sunlight!

 

These beetles have transparent exoskeleton that sort of act like a shield to the bug (Not sure why these are not called Shield Bugs instead :p)

 

Unfortunately, this gorgeous-looking beetle is kind of a pest >_<

 

PS: No this is not Charidotella sexpunctata =.=
