Most likely Onocosmoecus but I want to look at a couple critters.
I like the new site look. It will take awhile to look around.

Jason - I decided it is Onocosmoecus. While current taxonomy lists only Onocosmoecus unicolor from that part of the world, several folks have commented on the highly variable adult morphology across NA. Quite a few taxa have been synonymized within O. unicolor which also is often an indication of morphological variability. Current limited, provisional DNA results seems to indicate there may be a couple cryptic species withing O. unicolor so I would leave the photos at genus level for now.
