Is this a Phobaeticus chani (Chan´s megastick)?

Near our hydroelectric plant, at Boqueron, Panama, we found this insect.  It was very rare for us, so we took several photos of it.  Later we found an article written on the natural history museum web page (http://www.nhm.ac.uk/about-us/news/2010/december/stick-insect-makes-bbc-top-10-new-species-of-decade93170.html) that describes a similar insect, but from Bormeo.  We are wondering if this is the same speciment, or related to it.
