Wonderful-I had no clue about this one!
Thank you very much Blaine.

 
you're welcome
your ID's are generally right to the order and family level. Have you thought about posting at the family or order pages, rather than ID request? They may be viewed more likely by specialists in different groups.

 
Thanks very much for the tip Blaine.
The reason that I am posting to ID Request is that I'm compiling a list of insect spp. for a conservation area where I volunteer and am trying to get as many of my tentative IDs verified by experts such as yourself within a short time period in advance of my rapidly-approaching deadline. I'm striving for a high level of accuracy and don't want to rely on my 'hunches', even if they have served me well in the past. Afterwards, my strategy will be to contact experts for the various taxa directly to fill in any gaps.
