This beetle ,about 2 cm long ,gave me a start ,when it landed on me .
The colours made it appear like a piece of jewelry,can anyone give an ID please.
It's not a beetle, but a shield bug in the family Scutelleridae.
Thanks Isidro ,I forgot this question was still open .It is indeed a Shield bug ,sometimes called a Camelia Shield bug or Tea bug ,( poecilocoris latus ).
