second D. amabilis
although this one doesn't appear to be strickly "parallel sided", the pronotum appears to be black with anterior margin narrowly pale. Other two spoted candidates might include D. myrmidon (more oval), and D. humilis Gordon (must be dorso-ventrally flattened, with "pronotum dark reddish brown"(1) - no mention of pale anterior margin)
