Thanks! I tried to rear a cocoon once, but it turned out to be a female, so all I got was a bunch of tiny larvae!

Flight time is good. Size?
Sorry for the double post! Not sure how that happened.

I estimate it was 6 mm...
from head to wingtip. Does that make sense? I'm very familiar with the larvae, but have never seen an adult before.

 
6 mm is good
Charley, I really do not see anything else it could be. Not many photos online and your photo is very nice!
