This one has been lurking in the doldrums of obscurity since the 2012 Gathering. It looks similar to Draeculacephala robinsoni, but the reticulation doesn't look right. Any thoughts?

Maybe an oddly colored Draeculacephala producta
This one has blue in the same pattern -

Awesome find!
Curious to see what this turns out to be!

Me too
I'm thinking it's most likely Conala, as Neohecalus has a rounded head. I emailed guide page to Andy, for his feedback.

Dr. Hamilton commented, "I have no idea what species, possibly tropical. I will have to ask my colleagues. It is not Draeculacephala, as there are no prominent ocelli on the head. It is not Spangbergiella as there are 4 orange lines on the thorax, not just 3. My best guesses are a Neohecalus or a (tropical) Conala with a more pointed head than any we know so far."
