Philinopsis speciosa from Lembeh, Indonesia
Identification verified by Richard Willan
 

Identification is verified by Richard Willan, Nudi Pixel expert

Comment from Richard Willan: This individual is an example of the very sparsely spotted colour form of this extremely variable species. By contrast, Philinopsis gardineri would have a bulbous head and the posterior of the head shield would have a thin white marginal line.
 

Comment from the photographer: I'm not really sure
