I think you are right on the ID. Neat find! Do you still have the specimen?
If so, could you send me an e-mail regarding it? My e-mail address is on my bio, just click on my name at the end of this comment.

Thanks.
I do not have the specimen, it flew away after warming up on the patio table for about 3 hours.
I do have lots more pictures of it and could send them to you. Let me know.

Thanks anyway - don't worry about the photos, the ones you posted are very good. I will move them to the page for this species.
