Thanbks Bob . This sems to b
Thanbks Bob . This sems to be a pretty rare one. The only postings are from the Texas Hill Country.

Moved from ID Request.

With all due respect, Bob, I would like for you to reconsider this placement. Jan Metlevski identified this species for me in 2017. He said he had not seen one for quite a while. While not posted, I have seen them a number of times since, in March, April, May,June,& August.

I think it is a better match down to the green eye. Ponometia pulchra

I can post more if you would like to see them.

Thanks Bob
