Moved
Moved from Tibicen.

Tibicen figuratus (MALE)
I am inclined for the following reasons to say T. figuratus!
1) DATE - late in the season and figuratus is a late season species
2) Color - figuratus is typically very salmon-pinkish when teneral
3) short very round opercula - visible in this specimen

 
Thanks for
the id.Didnt think this one would go any further.
