Leaf beetle (<em>Cryptocephalus</em> sp.)
30-JUN-2012 Christine Hanrahan

Leaf beetle (Cryptocephalus sp.)

A small Chrysomelid (leaf-eating) beetle with a rather odd shape. The name comes from the Greek for hidden head! And as you can see, the head is hidden.

He looks like an extraterrestrial creature. Love his shiny head. V.
