Thanks!
I agree with you - it seems to fit perfectly and there don't seem to be any easily confused species.
Unfortunately, this guy (gal?) perished on the spot shortly after. It's been so hot and dry here - wonder if thats why.... I have it stored in the freezer now for my 7 year old to see.
Thanks for the ID from this decidedly non-expert bug fan!
