Found near this identified female;

Thank you...
Thanks to both Dr Hamilton and Eric for helping with this ID

Probably another delphacid, and an adult at that. Those big, cylindrical basal antennal segments seem to be diagnostic for the family, at least in North America. Andy Hamilton will correct me if I'm wrong:-)
