Is this Beallara Eurostar or Odontonia Samurai, or smth else?
First I thought it was a Eurostar, I really wanted one for a while, got back home, started googling and it looks quite different from online pictures.
Samurai looks wrong too, but the colours are close.

Couldn't pass by this tiny creature as well:

Never had Promenaea, never even saw one in real life. Is it just a hybrid Promenaea or does it have a name?
I highly doubt we would have some natural genera in flower shops here.

No, I don't think it's Eurostar. Eurostar is pink.

Thanks. :(
Eurostar also seems to be larger, these are closer to Jungle Monarch's size rather than Beallara's.
Could it be Samurai then? It seems slightly different too. :-\

I think both Eurostar and Samuria have larger flowers? Those look small. There are a lot of similar grex's, probably some in the trade that don't have a registered name. I would take any id with a pinch of salt.

With the promenea, I can't identify as I don't know them well. You'd have to get a better picture anyway, probably showing lip details. All you can really tell in that picture is that it's yellow!

Thank you!
Pseudo Samurai is 5x5cm with petals spread, or smth like 5x3.5cm the way it normally looks.

As to Promenaea that's the best I could get for now:

I'm waiting for more flowers to open, then will take a better pic.

I've never seen a pink eurostar......mine is yellow and brown. Your plant definitely isn't eurostar, though.

The promenaea looks like a xanthina hybrid.

Telepogon is correct that this is Prom. Citrina which is s synonym of Prom Xanthena.
I have attacked an image of my own.
These are quite easy to grow but don't like to get their leaves wet or they will rot.
Pretty little things.
