Moved from Hypera.

4 species in SC (according to Ciegler's book) and I cannot rule out 3 of them from these pics.

Moved from subgenus Hypera.

Sorry for the double move, meant to put this at the genus, not subgenus, level

Thanks, Blaine
Any shots that would be helpful to get a species ID? I still have the live specimen.
