Moved tentatively but quite sure this is it; nicest series!
will ask Dr Dunford to check
Moved from Beetles.

 
Jim Dunford: "looks like basalis to me; known in MS"

Nice
Definately looks like a Statira, but does not match any of the species in the Eastern tenebs website. Looks a little like S. basalis in the guide, which has been recorded from TX.

 
Thanks Blaine
and V.
