Coelidiinae - Tinobregmus vittatus
Quintana Neotropical Bird Sanctuary, Brazoria County, Texas, USA

I'm reasonably certain that this adult is conspecific with the nymph I posted from the same site in April 2018.

The nymph was on Morella cerifera, and the adult was on Cissus trifoliata, a vine that was intertwined with the Morella. I remember seeing adults on both Morella and Cissus. I don't remember if I saw nymphs on anything other than Morella.

Unfortunately, all I had was my phone, and this was the best photo I could get.

Going from memory, I think it looked about 7-plus millimeters long.

Some individuals had faint brownish-red streaking on the forewings. Not sure if it was on the veins, between the veins, or both.

I'm wondering if it could be something other than Tinobregmus vittata, and if so, what indicates that it's something else. Either way, I'm also wondering if this is a potential new host record or nymph association.

Thanks for any comments.

Moved from Tinobregmus.
