Descripción: The "Gold turtle beetle" belongs to the family of Chrysomelidae. It is widespreaded in the United States and it is one of the smallest transparent creatures in the world. Adults measure 5–7 mm in length and vary in color from copper bronze with black spots, to brilliant gold: for these reasons they are also called "Goldbugs". The elytral margins are expanded and nearly transparent. The color can turn from shiny gold to reddish-brown when the beetle is disturbed.
