Both of you are great in identifying insects so I'll be counting on you guys! I'll do my best as well :)

Thanks for the flowers, Chun!! I always do my best, even on the other side of the globe, so for me it is best to be located in the middle ;-)

By the way Hoo, you will see Bayucca commenting a lot here.
He is one of the best in insect identification ;-D

Looks very similar to Australcmena species, must be from a related genus.

Thanks for identifying, bayucca. Just wondering, could it be from the genus Zelus ?
