I am assuming this to be Pentacora signoreti. Confirmation would be appreciated. Found in salt marsh area.

Pentacora signoreti
Yep, it appears to be P. signoreti; I believe I can see the short black spines on the lateral margins of the pronotum. Nice picture, especially considering how difficult it is to approach Pentacora without them flying quickly away!

much appreciated, John.

Moved tentatively; nice bug...
Moved from Shore Bugs.
