please wait for expert input before placing images to guide pages: errors may be very hard to spot, but very fast to proliferate; keep in mind that thousands of users rely on BugGuide to identify their catch

 
Thank You

Thyanta custator…
The species is quite variable in appearance, but likely in this case.

See reference here.
