Is this a Mallophora or a Laphria? How does one tell the difference. I have included a wing veination picture hoping this is helpful. ID would be most appreciated.

Wing veins
Are not useful between Laphria species. Appears to be a second female L. astur.

 
Thanks again
I have moved these images to the Laphria genus in the guide, but there is no page for this species. Since I am not an editor, I cannot create a page, can you?
