Target beetle - Ischnocodia annulus

Aptly named Target Beetle, Ischnocodia annulus (Coleoptera - Chrysomelidae) is a species of tortoise beetle easily recognizable by its concentric black lines on the body on a shiny golden background that resemble a target mark. The edges of these amazing beetles are semitransparent with radiant golden or yellowish hues.

This is a neotropical species known from Mexico, Central and South America, and also found in the Caribbean islands.
