These are not yet adult or geometricus. Are they black or brown?
Black everywhere?

The males around here are smaller and brown in color... The females I've seen have always been a nice glossy black with the red hourglass like in your photos! However, I have seen some very dark brown females around here...

Great animals!! Wish I could help you more.

Dark ones are prolly mactans or hesperus. The thing is, they are from the US normally.... Tredecimguttatus have red on their backs too... not only on their belly.

How big are the adults?

The brown and striped ones need another moult to adulthood
