Marava - male

Marava - Male
Homestead, Miami-Dade County, Florida, USA
July 15, 2018
Found this male and 5 females on the trunk of a palm tree in a hotel parking lot at night. I checked numerous other palm trees in the area without success. These key out to Marava, but clearly are not either of the two species represented in the guide. A third species, M. unidentata (Beauvois), is supposedly recorded from the U.S, but I cannot seem to find any information on it. Leaving these images at genus for now until I come up with some relevant literature.
