Thankyou again Martin , yah another new one for me . :)
I am thinking also with a lot of things down here , perhaps ours a little darker , it was a very gorgeous looking beetle.

A great beetle Charlie.
The translucence and honey color are attractive,
Notice for lighter skirt and black head.
Pronotum may have irregular dark patterning.
