Mottled Tortoise Beetle

If you scroll down to a couple past posts, you’ll see that this insect went from what looked like a strange, goo-covered caterpillar to a bizarre, armored alien looking pupa. As it turns out, it was a tortoise beetle all along and this is what it looks like as an adult. I believe it is the mottled tortoise beetle, Deloyala guttata, and it’s the first time I’ve seen it on St. Martin.
