ID notes from Blatchley
The photo above shows the details of the cells on the pronotum well. Quoting Blatchley's key and description (1):
Base of elytra and each side of thorax yellowish; transverse carina between the front and hind rows of cells strong, sinuate....
Resembles (Eros) thoracicus (=Dictyopterus thoracicus Randall 1838) in color, but distinguished by having six cells on thorax, the middle front one with sides indistinct but with a strong central carina ; hind middle cell narrow like a channel ; second joint of antennae more than half as long as third.

(I've added that material to the guide page.)
