Tortoise Beetle (Aspidimorpha sp., Cassidinae, Chrysomelidae)

I appreciate that the flash reflection around this beetle's margins is not good photography and I have other images where this is avoided by slightly changing the angle, but I couldn't resist posting this "ring of confidence" halo effect adding further to this magnificent insect's exquisite alien appearance.
