I got as far as Stenopodainae and then couldn't figure out the difference between Oncocephalus and Narvesus, and maybe other genera. Thanks for ID help.

Having second thoughts. It's a very good match for S. spinulosa, but does appear to be out of range for that species. Maybe another representative of the genus? Best to let the experts place this one.

 
Stenopoda
Thanks - I agree it's an excellent match for Stenopoda spinulosa, including leg color. (Oncocephalus and Narvesus appear to have dark and light leg markings, at least in BG images.) I also looked at the iNaturalist map for Stenopoda - no sightings west of Texas or nearby in Mexico.
