I think this is Microbembex monodonta. Can someone confirm?

its M. monodonta

Probably correct.
Didn't Doug Yanega already ID this image from your Pbase site? I'll move it to the guide page.

I think you're right
The id on my pbase site was given without the person's name attached, but it does look like other messages Doug Yanega posted.
This was one of my first postings, when I didn't know much about this site. I'll have to review my early postings to see if there's any others with id's that aren't placed properly in the guide.
