Hi guys, This is obviously a leaf beetle of some sort, but I doubt the photo is good enough to say which one. There are quite a few similar species.

If it can be identified to Leaf beetle, we have a species entry for that family, CHRYSOMELIDAE (family). I've made that suggestion, but it will need an Insect Moderator to confirm that family.
