Looks a lot like the one by John Davis at MPG. Found at light.

Moved tentatively
Moved from Epipaschiinae.

Moved from ID Request.

I thought more like the Robert Pearson photo. Looks like you could be right. Do you have a dorsal view as well? If so, I would like to see it. We don't have one for Texas but it looks like you were in range on MPG.

No sorry I don't have a dorsa
No sorry I don't have a dorsal photo. Unless the wings are held flat above the abdomen I usually try to get a wing shot so that most of the wing is in focus. Also the palps would not have been in such a good view in a dorsal photo. Thanks for your time on this one.
