Brilliant colors. Help to identify will be much appreciated.

Moved from ID Request.

Yes, I think Plant bug too.
I'm not an expert, and there are several plant bugs with very similar coloration. I think yours though is in the tribe Resthenini.

Thank you
Very helpful. I believe you folks nailed it.

not a beetle

Thanks Tony
