I still think this one is an Eoophyla sp., not Talanga. The markings are different. What do you think, Albert?

Arachnura scorpionoides is the only one found in South Africa. So it this one.

Acrididae, Rhytidochrotinae, Opaon sp., unfortunately there are at least 3 other species around, which looks very similar.

Alagoasa decemguttata is the actual and correct name. Omophoita cyanipennis is a different beetle! I somehow remember that it was once called Disonycha.

I think it might be Gonatodes concinnatus, female.

@fred: Dou you have any other picture of it, for example one, where we can see the hindwings? Even it is a "bad" one ;-)

I would agree with Cyanopepla sp. I checked all the available literature, even older descriptions, but did not find any reasonable match. I also asked Michel Laguerre and he also did not find any closer match for a species. It could be an undescribed one or a color variation. The best match I found would be Cyanopepla girardi, but unfortunately the spots, whcih are on the same place and of the same size, are completely white, not such a bright and clear red like in this one.

Alagoasa decemguttata is correct, however, we have to consider, that this species is extremely variable and also renamed. Thanks, Dwain!
