Sesiid - Osminia bicornicolis

Sesiid - Osminia bicornicolis
Madera Canyon, Santa Cruz County, Arizona, USA
July 28, 2016
Found on forest understory vegetation.

Moved from Clearwing Moths.

This image is most likely Osminia bicornicolis. It is a northern Mexican species that has be caught in Santa Cruz Co. AZ but has only been found 2 or 3 times in the USA. Nothing else is known about this species.

Any information on exact elevation, location, plants in the understory would be helpful. Also, a copy of the original image would be helpful for my references.
