Scaphytopius
Yes; but I don't know this species. The literature suggests S. majestus but the description stresses a black face and does not mention the distinctive diagonal stripe on the wing tips; however, the description is based solely on males, and the differences may be characteristic only of the female. We have a similar specimen from Mexico, but it lacks an abdomen.
