Attracted to lights

Moved from Ctenotrachelus. See guide page for species--this appears to be the only one in the Southeast.

Moved from Pygolampis sericea.

My Apologies
I made an assumption and I was incorrect. This is not in Pygolampis, it is actually in the genus Ctenotrachelus. Confirmation with a Ctenotrachelus photo of a UMMZ specimen will follow in a day or two.

Moved from Pygolampis.

Pygolampis sericea
The swollen profemora and first antenna segment subequal to anteocular area separate it from the other species.

Assassin bug!
Try genus Pygolampis in the guide pages....
