Thank YOU! NuwanChathuranga. You are correct-I looked thru this site and thus is a positive ID match. Thank you very much for sharing your knowledge.

Gorgeous!! Moved to Arthropods :-) Also I blanked the scientific name because that is reserved. You can simply tick the box "help me ID this species" if you don't know what it is. But you already have a suggestion with 3 votes :-)
