I don't, because hubby was tapping his foot while I photographed yet another spotting. Lesson learned! I'll go back and try to find him.

Do you happen to have any other shots of this bug? A closer look at the pronotum (scooped section behind the head) might help narrow down the ID, or at least rule some things out. Thanks!
