Can anyone help in identifying these brightly coloured beetles photograhed in the Gambia in Jan 2011
They are not beetles (Coleoptera) but bugs (Hemiptera, Heteroptera). Possibly of the family Scutelleridae.
It seems to belong in the genus Calidea, like C. panaethiopica which is found in Gambia (but there other similar species).
