Melormenis basalis?
It’s certainly not M. pruinosa. Looks like M. basalis to me.

 
I sure
appreciate your expertise in trying to identify this species.

 
I certainly
appreciate the subfamily ID. Can't wait to see if someone can identify the genus. :)

 
Genus is Melormenis
The species is Melormenis basalis, which would be in the Tribe Nephesini on BugGuide, if it were included on BugGuide. On iNaturalist, it’s in the Subtribe Cryptoflatina, which is also in the tribe Nephesini.
