Unfortunately,
in this image the right antenna is obscuring the distinguishing feature we're looking for. The legs, marks and location look right for L. clypealis though - I really think that's the correct ID. I was wondering whether a partially extended feeding tube, seen from above, could look like a pointy nose. As far as I can tell from this one, it wasn't feeding, so I think that is actually the clypeus, visible in your first shot.

I'm moving these nice images to the guide page for this species. You can always find your images by clicking on your name and then "Images submitted by this contributor." Thanks for your contribution - I hope we'll see more from you.
