Menestomorpha kimballi

Menestomorpha kimballi
Hobe Sound, Martin County, Florida, USA
December 8, 2012
Size: 11 mm
I believe this is the Oecophorid, Menestomorpha kimballi 1029, based on a careful comparison with the single MPG spread-specimen photo, and based on geographic location- Florida. Can someone please verify. There is no Guide Page for this species. At blacklight.
