As fate (fateful barklice) would have it this one died before I could get home and photograph it. Please excuse the image quality. A soon as I capture a live shot I'll frass this one. I performed a dissection on this one and made a permanent slide of the genitalia. The subgenital plate and ovipositor valvulae match Fig. 655 and Fig. 192 in (1). Confirmed by Mockford.
