Chortophaga viridifasciata
is correct. This is a next to last (4th) instar nymph. These green and purple/pink ones are I think beautiful. The adults are particularly pretty. This looks like a female, and this coloration is rare in males (which are more often brown). Both females and males are varied in coloration though.

 
I am sorry...
I must have missed your comment.

Thanks for confirming this as Chortophaga viridifasciata.

Have a great day!

Chortophaga viridifasciata has this look,
see , but one of the experts should be able to give you a definite ID,

 
I see it too..
Looks good at a quick glance. I will leave it here for another day or so to see if an expert drops by. If not, I will do a little research now that I have a starting point.

Thanks!
