Anafroptilum album
Hi Salvador-

Yes to being of genus Anafroptilum.
However, I believe it to be Anafroptilum album, rather than being Anafroptilum asperatum.

That would be a new species for BugGuide!
I was simply comparing images posted on BugGuide as my only reference. Considering that there were no photos of Anafroptilum album on BugGuide, I couldn't have arrived at that ID. Thank you Roger!

New Guide Page
Yes, but there is one now. :-)
