That is
beautiful, looks like it would blend in real well on a Palatka holly tree. Great image.

Good to finally get a name
for this bug! Any more info? I found the species name on several university "holdings" lists but no data on distribution etc. BTW, who is Brian?

 
Sorry, Brian is
bnuts40, whose image is the fourth one on the guide page. Maybe you can post a comment on his image and see what other info he may have.
