Danae testacea (Ziegler) -- this is so freakin' nice!
new genus to BG -- thanx much, Joseph! maybe a new state record, too

I was hoping you might know what it is!

 
turns out,
"...It was actually reported for Maine by Procter (1946) from Mount Desert Island, but I'm not aware of any subsequent records." (Chris Majka, pers.comm.)

If you're bored...
I found this website on the family's info page, might help further ID or at least give you a few ideas.
