Peter Bryant posted one of these from California
see but it hasn't been ID'd yet. It looks closer to a Neacoryphus with that red collar than to Jadera . We'll be watching to see what suggestions you get. Nice capture - especially with the nymph!

Thanks for the help
and insight John and Jane. I'll cross my fingers and hope Peter's gets ID'd!
