ID confirmed by John Oswald
Moved from Antlions.

suspect something different... nice series!
in what situation was it found?
Moved from ID Request.

It was
found inside a cone-shaped antlion pit.

thanks... this does support your initial tentative ID
adding such habitat/biology notes to the 'Remarks' in the submission form it always a good idea.
hope Dr Oswald chimes in
