The specimens you sent are...
Lachsilla pedicularia. The ID was much easier since you sent 2 males as well. Do you want the specimens back? If not I'll add them to my collection.

 
Thank you Diane!
I appreciate your expert help. Please keep the specimens. This is an incredibly abundant species in El Paso at this time of the year and every day I find dozens of them floating in my pool. I have not had the pleasure to observe them on their hosts yet.

I got the specimens today...
It gave me a workout. Still working on it.

 
Excellent!
Looking forward to hearing from you on this bug.

I got out my specimens of...
Lachesilla dona and I don't think this one is that species. The wing markings are very distinct and the subgenital plate on females is highly pigmented with two relatively sharp distal processes. Could you send me the specimen?

 
Sure!
Just email me your address. (svitanza4 at yahoo dot com)
