Net-winged beetle - Dictyoptera simplicipes - female

Net-winged beetle - Dictyoptera simplicipes - Female
Greenwater Lakes, Pierce County, Washington, USA
June 14, 2010
Size: 7mm
Family is Lycidae not sure beyond that, caught at 2500' elevation, never seen them that high before.

right spelling is Dictypotera... but we can't change the page :(
Moved from ID Request.

Nice beetle! Most likely D. simplicipes, but let's wait for a second opinion.

Sorry, wrong spelling...

Or a third

Dictyopterus, I suspect.
The fact that the legs and the first antennal segment are red makes me think it might be D. simplicipes:

However, I am not an expert, and could be mistaken. Hold out for confirmation/correction.
