First one from Texas! Thanks much.

Moved from Beetles. Looks similar to Cynaeus

After looking at Cynaeus, I couldn't tell them apart except that the size reported for that species is 7 mm and I believe mine was much smaller, but considering that I didn't actually measure it, I probably should leave the size field empty.
