Thanks
Thank you so much for the ID again. I am going to plant more native plants this spring and summer and hope to see more insects like this.

Thanks!
Thanks. I was reading about this on BG after you provided the ID...is this the highest level of ID possible given no specimen? Seems to be a tricky group.

 
Would help if
Specimen-based data for AL were more complete and accessible

This is a female and appears to be lunatus (comments welcome!)
