Target Tortoise Beetle (Ischnocodia annulus) - Belize

A tiny beautiful chrysomelid we found on the most recent workshop in Belize. Not the greatest of shots here (just a simple record shot right where it was found) - but what a fantastic beetle! A bit of poking around reveals a few similar beetles baled as Ischnocodia annulus but I am unsure... any chrysomelid experts out there?


On another note for any Californians (or anybody else interested!) out there - I'll be teaching a brief introduction to macro photography at the Annenberg Space for Photography in LA Sunday, November 8, 2015. This lecture/hands-on workshop will be open to all skill levels looking to take closer and better photographs! Star Eco Station will be on hand to provide photogenic subjects for everyone to photograph!


So if you're interested in joining me for a few hours to talk macro and bugs - more information on the class can be found here:
