Moved from Telamona.

Looks like a female, in which case it is probably T. monticola (on oak) although the crest is somewhat longer, as in T. unicolor (on hickory), which has green females. Which trees were in the vicinity?

Pine oak forest
Bastrop St. Pk. is pine-oak dominated forest. Thanks, Mike
