Hello, Tim,

Welcome to Bug Guide. I hope you enjoy the site as much as I have.

I am not the expert you are looking for, and I am challenged trying to look at spread specimens since I have to think upside down, but I came across a possibility for you. Click on this to see the BG photographs of this species , however, I got to this suggestion from the spread plates on The photographs don't look the same! A suggestion not an ID.

location data needs correction [text in wrong fields]
reads "Near Moab Utah, Grand county Utah County, Utah..."
