Excellent find! Any chance you've got some more resolved images I could play around with to study these closer? Or better yet, since we now know what they are, some nice specimens placed in a reputable insect collection...

 
Thank you so much!
I really appreciate the ID on this one. I have added some other photos of the sequence, but they are not much better. My camera has pretty severe limits on what it can do. I will also add some photos taken several years ago of this same species. I'll see if anyone from UT is interested in collecting these. Thanks again, James.
