Can't seem to find this guys in the guide. At first I thought of similarly colored leaf or plant beetles, but then I noticed the feet/claws lack the "round pads" of leaf and plant beetles. This guy's legs look more like ground beetle's, tiger's or some long horn's. but did not find anything there either. The last 3 pictures are other individuals photographed in very close proximity at the same time as the one in the first 3 pics. I include them because they show the feet best, and the underside, also to show that some had the dark mark on the wing covers, some had a very faint marks and some were almost totally orange.
