You got some really beautiful shots of this great insect. Bayuca helped me ID one in Costa Rica:

Even from the descriptions I can't decide! though I lean towards D. aeagrus.

Agree with Dinia sp., and indeed probably Dinia aeagrus or Dinia mena. Can't really tell you the differences at the moment.
