A shade of doubt because of poor focus
However, I'm pretty sure they are Spharagemon collare. The only other option is S. marmorata, but they look too stocky, with the ridge on the pronotum too high for that species. Also, that species usually has a dark ring near the base of the hind tibia (the orange part of the hind leg).
