This Unidentified Flatinae looks very similar to my spotting no. 1436664546 in almost all aspects except a rather important one. It is a completely different colour. This specimen is yellowish on the pronotum, gradually becoming whitish - green over the scutellum and the tegmina. The margins of the tegmina are more solid yellow and the feint stripes which can be seen about two thirds of the way along are more solid green. Much of this description can be applied to the specimen in my spotting no. 1436664546 with the exception of the "whitish - green" would become "whitish - pink". So is it possible that there is a pink form and a green form of the same species? I apologise if this is too much rambling from an uninformed amateur, but I find that admitting that I don't know is usually the best way to to ask for help. Please help to straighten me out on this one if you have some species suggections.
