Species ID
While the gestalt looks good for P. tibialis here...there are also three other species (marginata, furcillata, sagittaria) that can look very similar. But two characters visible in your image here:

    1) Cheeks uniformly black, and
    2) discal cell dark

...together, cinch the ID of P. tibialis here.
