The orange objects below were found together with the beetles on the same Indian Curry Leaf plant (Murraya koenigii) in August 2014. At first, I thought that it might be a development stage of the beetle lava or some kind of secretion. Two weeks later, I found beetle larvae on the same plant. Hence, these orange objects were more likely to be the egg cases or oothecae of this beetle.
