In that case, I'll go

Name the order and family and common species name. Also, give a short note about its economic importance if it has one.

I'm going to say it's a
Colorado potato beetle (order Coleoptera of course, family Chrysomelidae). In regards to economic significance, I believe they devastate potato crops?

I was going to post an easy one (lady beetle, praying mantis, periodical cicada, etc.), but then I thought nah, I'll post a really ambiguous looking larva (yes, it is a member of a family that we need to know the immature form for). Here it is :
