Don Thomas says: "This looks like Banasa flavosa.
"I believe this is the second time that someone has sent in pictures of this species from Florida. Its known range is the Dominican Republic. I would like to get my hands on a specimen so I can confirm."

any chance, Steve?

Moved from Banasa.

 
Not Too Likely
I was on vacation with my wife and I don't expect to get back to Captiva Island any time soon.

I have pretty good top and side views so if there is detail which is diagnostic I could check. I know that's a poor substitute for a specimen.

Thank him for the help. Sorry I can't return the favor in full.

 
ok. happens. thanks for the nice addition anyway!
please add all you've got: given the problematic status of the bug in the US, anything could prove useful

 
Images Replaced
None of the other views really do give additional detail so I replaced the previously submitted images at higher resolution added a head crop.

 
thanks --hope DBT takes another look

love this one, too; you rock, Steve
Moved from True Bugs.
