Moved from Ladybird Beetles.

Might be C. munda. I'll try to confirm.

 
Yes, Cycloneda munda.
Polished Lady Beetle. It's very close to molting - the markings of the next instar are clearly visible through the stretched, too-small "skin." I think this is 2nd instar going to 3rd.

ID based on Gordon and Vandenberg's key to Cycloneda larvae.(1)

family confirmed.
