Came to MV lights. Believe to be either Neorthopleura thoracica or N. texana ?? I don't see either listed for data from Arkansas so I decided to post.. Thanks for the help.

Neorthopleura thoracica
This species is way-well-distributed. The entirely dark antennomeres suggests this is thoracica. As far as I can tell, texana always has the funicular segments paler.

 
thanks again!
