L. clypealis, I'm pretty sure
- it has the little pointy nose (the clypeus) distinctive to this species. Not L. phyllopus, anyway, because that species is known for the straight band, not zig-zagging.

This is a nice clean shot to add to the few in the guide.

For the identifying detail, see below:


 
Thanks
Thanks, Hannah. The zig-zag line is what made me think it might not be L. phyllopus. I've edited the title accordingly.

I'm moving it to the guide -
so the name will show up automatically, anyway. :)
