Size: ~1cm
Found on Hibiscus lasiocarpus on the same plant though on a different bud from a bunch of colorful nymphs:

Can anyone ID and confirm that the the nymphs belong to this adult?

Moved & unlinked; nice shots!
Moved from ID Request.

 
Thank you!
I don't have a macro lens, so I am happy when I manage to get a decent shot.

Hibiscus often has these lovelies
