Description

There was exactly seven black spots scattered on the red-orange colored elytra. The shape was hemispherical/ oval shaped. Length was one 1 1/2 cm. It had a small head with short black legs. It was able to attach itself to a leave with without the leave moving at all, concluding it is VERY light. It crawled very qucikly.
I found it in the grass and crawling over weeds and leaves.
