Aspidomorpha miliaris - Tortoise Beetle
This is one of the strangest bugs that I have found, partially because I had never opened my eyes to bugs before, and such creatures went unnoticed.
Location is Bandung, West Java, Indonesia. Alongside a stream and paddy fields.
''Aspidimorpha miliaris'' is a widespread Asian species of beetles belonging to the family Chrysomelidae. The genus name is frequently misspelled as ''Aspidomorpha'', due to an unjustified spelling change in 1848 .
