It is an interestng find. Although the orange lines suggest C. colemani, orange lines sometimes occur in other species. If we ignore the orange lines I would have said this was C. strigata. In C. colemani the orange border is submarginal. C. strigata, on the other hand, has a marginal orange border and has the same arrangement of greyish translucent patches as your specimen.
At this stage, I would tentatively suggest it is a colour form of C. strigata.
