Moved from Banasa flavosa.

Moved tentatively
Moved from Banasa.

I sent the specimen to Dr. Thomas a while back
Not sure if he received it or not.

excellent; suggest asking/reminding him about it
i'm sure he is just swamped with material to study and various other duties

Moved from Stink Bugs.
Thanks! I did keep the specimen; what sort of photo would be best for an ID?

not sure a photo will do :/

hmm... Banasa (lenticularis)? teneral Piezodorus guildinii??

D.B. Thomas: "Banasa; I hope the photographer kept the specimen
"...because this looks like B. flavosa, a species only known from the Dominican Republic. I need to see the terminalia to be sure."
