This guy surely could make part of cast from X-Men movie. An invisible shelter? If i had another chance for a new shot, the pic could be better, but, the wings ( even invisible ) works very well.
Any know this guy? Please, tell me to know more about him , Thanks

Thanks dear Osmeterium for informations,have to agree thatīs a Charidotella sexpunctata in juvenile stage. Adult has a very brilliant golden color ( As i saw in www.bugguide.com).

Hello Brutamonte,

I think this tortoise beetle is Charidotella sexpunctata (Chrysomelidae, Cassidinae), a widely-distributed species (from Canada to Argentina).

Best regards,

Calibration Check
