Metalectra geminicincta

Metalectra geminicincta
St. Marks, Wakulla County, Florida, USA
August 22, 2019
Looking for confirmation that this is indeed Metalectra geminicincta, which is not in my field guide.

Taken around 11pm. Attracted to a UV black light.

Not sure
I added this image to MPG but it may change. A search of nearest neighbors by DNA barcode at BOLD of specimens identified as Metalectra geminicincta returned what I feel is a better match from Costa Rica. The BIN group for this sample has no identification but it is not geminicincta. I have an email into experts for help.

BOLD Sample ID: 10-SRNP-114566

Moved from ID Request. Kyhl’s was the only confirmation you needed for placement here. Thanks for adding to the guide!
