Philinopsis speciosa from Perhentian, Malaysia
Identification verified by Richard Willan
 

Identification is verified by Richard Willan, Nudi Pixel expert

Comment from Richard Willan: A rather "typical" individual with many orange and white spots on the head shield and posterior shield. But because this species is so variable in terms of coloration, it is impossible to really pick out any individual that could be called "typical". Note the raised and rounded posterior end to the head shield – at least that is a "typical" character for this species.
