The occipital ridge shows this specimen to be in the subfamily Perlinae. The distinctive head markings connote a form of Agnetina capitata I've seen in photos of Midwestern specimens. I'm not positive on this one as I can't vouch for the accuracy of the photos compared with it, but I hated to see this guy languish on the family page when it's clearly Perlinae.

Compare the pronotal and head markings with this specimen. Heck, the whole dorsum is a good match. It seems a credible site.
