I am fairly sure that this is Disonycha glabrata. I found many of these on the same plant but there were at least three different marked patterns on the pronotum.

Here are thumbs to the other two:

Disonycha glabrata
yes, and also the amount of black on the legs and the head. Nice to see this variation. The distiguishing character is the black border of the elytra

Thanks Rob...
I have moved all three of these to species level. I am pretty sure that the other two that I have thumbnailed here are the same even though they have slight coloration differences.

yes, I refered to the variation between the three images. they are all Disonycha glabrata to me.

I am sorry
I misunderstood.

Thanks again for your help.
