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.

This is a most stunning photograph of a Giant Metallic Ceiba Borer, Euchroma gigantea, a species that is found in Central and South America.
