Although this one lacks the brown on the abdomen, i would not rule out winnemanna...looks stout. The slate eyes are typical of these and less so of linnei here in the east (usu. Dark eyes and darker green). The abdomen does not look as glossy as in linnei either. I have collected many winnemanna along the east coast while calling (clear calls)...and many lack the brown. Both taxa occur in this location. The bowed wing is also typical in eastern winnemanna.

Looks an awful lot like pruin
Looks an awful lot like pruinosus as well...
