Megamelus gracilis
A Delphacid with the head narrow between the eyes and strongly produced before them. Unlike most members of its genus, the wing veins are dark and the antennae have black tips. It has been recorded from Florida but not yet from Texas. Congratulations!

for the ID. I'm excited it's a new record! Taking photos of bugs at my porchlight has paid off! Thanks again for the ID!
