Reaing through the Owlets book
this seems more likely to be Tarache tetragona, pg 241. What do you think?

 
I recall
I recall raising this larva to an adult which was the basis for the ID. Oddly, I did not photograph the adult. I tried to find larval shots of Tarache tetragonal for comparison but was unsuccessful. I'm guessing that the pg 241 reference is?

 
If you go to Amazon
here, you can click on look inside. If you search for flavifimbriata, page 241 should come up.
