Good link Ian! Sometimes the species ID is very difficult without invasive inspection.

So just to temporarily Siphanta sp.

Ian, that is the usual size of these insects. We know this is a full sized adult because it has wings already. The young look like this http://www.flickr.com/photos/entomopixel...

Siphanta sp is a good idea. I have yet to find a good reference for this genus. Sorry for the link not working. Here it is http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/776...

Yes, Cindy. There are some differences including the colored edge continuing up to the legs and veins being slightly colored. I think it is sufficiently different to be likely a different species. I would be inclined to check the bug guide more closely or mark it as (poss. Siphanta sp.)

Or may be because still immature, its length about 12 mm.

It is very similar to Siphanta acuta but the shape is slightly different. I'm not sure if its a different species of a variation of it. My S. acuta looks just like Argybee's http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/... The "tail" on this spotting is straight where as the martinl's and mine have a bit of a curve. The coloring is a bit different but these two factors could be due to camera angles and lighting. martinl, what do you think?
