    Thanks for posting, one of these popped out of an Ecphora I was prepping and I was wondering what it was!

    It can be devil9shly hard to ID some of this stuff. I use six books plus three web sites just to ID the stuff from one location! That's why I've been systematically posting every new species (to me) that I find out there. The literature is scarce and sketchy.
