Pselliopus barberi

Pselliopus barberi
Orange County, North Carolina, USA
April 16, 2006
Size: 13 mm
Found flying onto some bushes. I tried without success to photograph it in its natural habitat, so catpured and posed it. Judging from recent images, this sure looks like Pselliopus barberi:

Somebody correct me if I'm out of line.

I wonder if we should go through and try to assign Pselliopus to species?

These, being real brown, are P. cinctus, perhaps?

While these real orange ones, and others, are, perhaps, P. barberi?
