I feel sure of this ID, but am not placing it to species because MPG does not show Texas within it's range.

Just found Delmar Cain's similar specimen so I am linking the two to move his when I hear back from Peter Jump. Ed Knudson seemed to agree with Delmar and I on the AZ species but the dissection should solve the question.

Those tricky Acrolophus
I'm only comfortable placing a few of the more distinctive species to species-level (mycetophagus, popeanella, spilotus, etc.). Peter Jump may be able to confirm your ID. He's the leading authority on North American Acrolophidae. hpjump@earthlink.net
