I would have to see the front of the face to be sure.
But given the range this must be E. hageni. The other 2 American species are found in Florida.

Diane. I saw another one today, and got a few more shots, including one that shows the front of the face. I added it here, as I am sure it is the same species.

Even if it's the same species...
...these should be unlinked. Linking is reserved for different views of the same specimen.

The two can be cross referenced by placing thumbnails in the Remarks section of each, if you wish.

Thanks again, to both you and Diane.

Moved from ID Request.
