the guide, it looks like it fits into the Ecliminae ยป Lepidophora page. Would you agree?

 
Toxophora
I checked with Neal Evenhuis, cause I'm no expert on this family, and he told me that it is the genus Toxophora. I made a new guide page for this genus and moved you pics there - first record for this genus in the guide..

 
Thanks
I love the joy of discovery - even if others have gone before us.
