Tibicen pruinosus

Excellent Pic!
This is an excellent example of the western pruinosus with the very elongated pruinose mark behind the tymbal cover (very similar in appearance to the eastern "Coastal species", T. latifaciatus - and the reason the two are often confused in preserved collections!)

 
thanks
I'm glad it's a helpful reference image. :)
Forgot to do a pic like this last year because they're such a common species around here.
