I think Epistictina viridimaculata (Boheman, 1850).
Is it right?

Length = 10,8 mm

This is probably Epistictina viridmaculata but you can not exclude E. perplexa. Both species are very similar and difficult to identification based on photo only. Your specimen has length above 10 mm and that raises my doubts. Generally, E. viridimaculata is smaller species with length up to 10 mm while E. perplexa is larger, with length above 10 mm but the length range of both species is somewhat overlapping.

Dear Lech,
Thank you for information.
Your web-site about Cassidinae is wonderful!

We can write for now: Epistictina viridimaculata (Boheman, 1850) (cf.).
