Please crop you images close to "just the bug". Only you and the editors can see your full-size images. Everyone else just sees this shrunken version.

It is an adult female. The more info you include (if you have it), the more value your image has. For instance, when you use advanced search. I did it for you this time.
Welcome to Bugguide. It looks like you have very nice stuff. I hope to see more.
