I am pretty sure this is Sophonia. but need help getting this to species.

I don't think it is S. orientalis because of the total lack of red colored stripes but I could be wrong.

(S. rufofascia)?
Sorry about the image quality but it was a "one shot" deal. Would like to keep it until a better image for this species in Louisiana makes it to BugGuide.

Sophonia orientalis
This specimen is pale because it has recently molted ("teneral").

Thanks Dr. Hamilton!
Thanks again for your help!
