What's That Bug? does not endorse extermination

Large, yellow, very impressive jungle beetle
The beast was huge – like a small cell phone. Brilliant yellow with prominent eye spots on the thorax. See picture. It landed on a friend and he now suffers from Post Traumatic Stress. Hope you can help and thanks if you do.
P.S. The specimen shed coloration from its wings when touched.

    Hi NR. I would love to use this image in my book on world insects. I would need your copyright name to include. My publishers do not pay for images, so I can only offer the small fame of published image and very big thanks from me.
