Moved tentatively; nice bug

was thinking maybe a Hymenorus, but I cannot off-hand rule-out a tetratomid/melandryid. very interesting.

Pseudocistela amoena?
looks about right

ID confirmed by W.E. Steiner, Jr: "Yes, but the late July record
" unusual. Not a common beast."

looks ok to me...
(for what it's worth :)
