These yellow dobsonflies resemble the Chloronia genus, but I can't find anyplace that says they are found in South America. These are a little smaller (4 cm) than the darker, more common dobsonflies. I have only seen a few individuals and they have always been female. I'm not sure if these are merely immature darker dobsonflies, or a species of their own.
These were found here on the screen of the door of a cement block generator shed in the Amazon rainforest of SE Ecuador.
The colors are really beautiful. So much more so than the drab common dobsonflies we see so many of.
