Moved from Stylopidae.

 
ID
I'm pretty sure it is Caenocholax fenyesi Pierce sensu lato (Strepsiptera: Myrmecolacidae).

Kathirithamby, J. and S. J. Taylor. 2005. A new species of Halictophagus (Insecta: Strepsiptera: Halictophagidae) from Texas, and a checklist of Strepsiptera from the United States and Canada. Zootaxa 1056:1-18.
