Yes, you are right..
must be E. madagascariensis.

Could you take a lateral shot?
That would help with ID.

 
I just added
a lateral view. Perhaps this will confirm the ID?

 
examined my only specimen...
Your images closely resemble the appearance of my specimen from Hillsboro Co. Florida. Your specimen is Echmepteryx madascariensis.

 
Thanks very
much for the confirmation, Diane.
