Patrick hits the jackpot! :-))
Yes, quite right, this is a female of Blera confusa!

Cynorhina (Blera) confusa?
Looks close to Cynorhina (formerly, or presently Blera?), perhaps, see Insects of Cedar Creek, esp. that image of C. confusa. The abdominal pattern looks similar, if not identical. We may have a winner.
