Lithacodes gracea is similar, but a southern species

Hi Robert. I wanted to make sure I understood before moving. Do you think we should move this to L. fasciola? Thanks!

Nice Find
& Foto. I'll be interested to see what is said about this one. Not one I've seen. BTW - Greetings from Columbia, MO. I see a lot of your great pictures posted here for Missouri.

Jon, thanks for the compliment. I'm always just happy to get a photo that's IDable. :)
