I have looked and looked for this one. Seems large for anything I can find that looks similar. Any ID help would be appreciated. I had 6 of them this last week.

Homoeosoma?
That would be my guess, and at least some members of that genus are fairly large.

Hi Aaron,

I went through your genus and see why you made the suggestion, but one has been dissected and my dissections looks NOTHING like that one.

Sending it to Tony Thomas for help.

 
I’ll be interested to see what it is

Thank you very much Aaron. Will go back to the drawing board! Most of the ones I have placed as Homoesoma have had dots not lines, but I think Valerie Bugh she thought many of hers were Homoeosoma. Am dissecting it now.
