Chrysomelidae, Cassidinae, Omaspides collecta, female.

Cabañas Yankuam, Via Nuevo Paraiso, Nangaritza, Zamora Chinchcipe, Ecuador.

ID by Lukas Sekerka

Described by Spaeth in 1937. He wrote "female unknown":
"Die Makel des Seitendaches hat zwei dunkle Querbinden; vor der Spitze der Scheibe ist je eine unscharfe, vorn sich netzförmig auflösende, längliche gelbe Makel. Halsschild vorn breit abgestutzt, schmal rötlich, an der Seite gerade, Flügeldecken des Weibchens an der Basis seicht ausgerandet, die Schulterecken sehr wenig vorgezogen und gewinkelt; Seitendach breit; Scheibe mit sehr verloschener Netzung. 13 x 12,5 mm (Weibchen unbekannt). Ecuador (Buckley, Brit. Mus.) ......................collecta n. Sp."
Spaeth (1937) page 92:
https://www.zobodat.at/pdf/Entomologische-Zeitung-Stettin_98_0079-0095.pdf

Now we have the first documented and verified female of this species and it is even mentioned in a paper by Leocadio et. al. (2020).

Subsociality and parental care is quite common in Cassidinae (and probably also in other Chrysomelidae) and an interesting behaviour.

The larvae were collected from the host plant Carpentaria acuminata and were bred feeding exclusively on it. The larvae were wrapped in a fecal cocoon, which is excreted after birth. The insect will carry and remain inside the fecal cocoon throughout the entire larval and pupal cycle, freeing itself only after emerging as an adult. The fecal cocoon consists of long fecal strands attached to the rear end of the insect, probably used both as camouflage and protection from predators.
