Third Variant of Tortoise Beetle

There’s one particular tree on the road in Grand Case that has been heavily decimated by the mottled tortoise beetle. Previously, I had seen two variants of this species, one was yellow and black with no iridescence, one was bright, iridescent green, and now this one, which resembles the yellow and black variant, but has iridescent red/purple on the wing covers.
