Thanks Viv! The link is all in Thai, is there any way to change it to english? That's a problem I've had with other spottings, you see them somewhere online and you think you have an ID but they don't know what it is either!

Beautiful shots Dan! There is a very similar unidentified insect in Thaibug.com. Good luck with the ident!

Thanks for the suggestion Ashish and mariajo, but I don't think it's that. An entomologist friend agrees with me, though he doesn't have an idea what it is.

Thanks mariajo, I think you might be right. I'm just waiting for a friend to look at it, see what he thinks.

Creo que podría ser una larva de Pyrrhocoris apterus.
