I have added a photo. I hope
I have added a photo. I hope you could find the information your are looking for..

 
Thanks Richard
That's just what I needed. I wanted to make sure this wasn't Hylurgopinus rufipes, as the two are often mistaken with each other. Hylurgopinus has a prominent and straight epistomal margin, and lacks the conspicuous transverse interocular impression.

Sorry for the waffling on an ID, but I wanted to be sure. According to Webster (2016) this is a new provincial record.

 
Thanks so much Marc..
