Mantisfly: Dicromantispa interrupta? - Dicromantispa interrupta

Mantisfly: Dicromantispa interrupta? - Dicromantispa interrupta
near West Union, Adams County, Ohio, USA
August 4, 2016
This mantisfly came into the mothing lights, one of a few that we saw over a few nights of trapping. Some were certainly Dicromantispa sayi, but this one seems to be D. interrupta? Thanks as always for the expert help!

Moved from Dicromantispa sayi.

Upon further consideration, I think this is indeed D. interrupta. It displays both the apical spot and the darkened cross-veins characteristic of that species.
