Good to hear from you, Luke! Hope all is going well!

I'm gonna float A. bifurcatum

Blub, blub, blub... I guess it drowned. :)

Mark,
My hope was to "spur" competing possibilities/guesses for further discussion, not to offer my opinion of what I think it actually is. In that I failed as no other options were offered. My gut tells me it is a spur-wing, but I could be wrong. Most of those species were put into the new genus, so I feel better with that at least. But, that's based on probability from known habitation and observable similarities rather than non-similarities based soley on maculation.

Absent an associated male adult (a dime against a doughnut it has spurs on the hind wings) there's liitle to be sure against the possibility of Procloeon, though the overall conformation of the nymph doesn't look right for that genus to me.
