Mobile (Dog River), Mobile County, Alabama, USA

Moved
This one is most definitely it. Except I don't remember a shiny orb on its back (sorry, I couldn't resist :)

Moved from Cerophytum.

fantastic find, man. i so damn wish the pic was sharper...
paparazzize them relentlessly -- we have to put a name on it

Moved from Beetles.

 
Another thought
Could this be Zenoa picea instead?

 
makes a lot of sense -- thanks, Brad; very convincing call.
Bob -- pls check out(1) and see what you think -- after all, you're the one who saw the beast

 
Me Too
I need to work out method of shooting glossy black.
