Yes
Correct genus but only two species in MA. Did not know you were in MA. And Happy Birthday by the way. Species oriens and vockerothi.

 
Much obliged!
Many thanks as usual for the ID Herschel! Yes, I relocated from TX to MA about 5 years ago. So, any tips on distinguishing those two species in the field, or are these the sort that require specimens in hand to separate?
