Holoplatys bicoloroides

The colour scheme on this male is distinctive and rather unusual for a Holoplatys species. It seems to match Holoplatys bicoloroides as described by Marek Zabka in 1991 and the specimen photographed here was found in South-east Queensland, which is within the known range of H. bicoloroides.
