Finding id's for insects can be hard work. It's been a rainy day here so I'm trying to find id's for some of mine as well. After a while of looking through photos everything starts looking the same so I move on to the next!

This may be it! Thank you! I've been looking for over an hour. He just seemed more black. Once I looked back at the photos I took I could see the whitish speckled. I've never seen one like this before!

Think I may have found an ID. Check the reference I gave you to see if that one matches up with yours.
