Asteiid(?) for California - Asteia beata

Asteiid(?) for California - Asteia beata
Long Beach, Los Angeles County, California, USA
April 18, 2017
If it is Asteiidae, it would be first record of that family for the western USA on BugGuide. Resembles Asteia beata from east coast. The only record of this family I can find from CA is Astiosoma aridum, but I can't find images/illustrations/descriptions for that species. Series include images with flash (showing unique simplified venation) and without (to better illustrate the abdomen markings)

I think this belongs in Asteia but is either an undescribed species or one not formally placed there.
