    1. No but was using this https://www.inaturalist.org/taxa/703384-Rhodobaenus-augustinus which has it in Risaralda state - what do you think?? Have a great holiday season ;¬) Posted 6 months ago
  2. Looking at the photos I agree with you. However, I am most certainly no experts, so if anything changes, we can always remove the ID. Happy Christmas! Posted 6 months ago
    1. Happy Christmas Claire, I'm in no way an expert in that or any field - just an enthusiast. I have seen it identified on flickr too https://www.flickr.com/photos/76033499@N00/29162233863/ Posted 6 months ago
