I turned it upside down to get a shot of it and it flew away. So the whole top shell of it is wings.That's a cool bug!

wickedcarpenter-

It's a Clavate Tortoise Beetle, Deloyala clavata. They retract their antennae when threatened.

Taxton, you are the bug man for knowing that one! I've never seen one before today and only because it was on my tying desk. Thanks for the input

If you look closely it looks like a pirate skull symbol on it's back.

Thanks, Jason. Coming from you, that's a high compliment.

No, not aquatic. They feed on plants in the morning glory family. My guess is that wickedcarpenter was probably out working in the yard before visiting his tying desk
