Thanks Willie. I think the male of this species is winged and you have reminded me to do a but more research on this spotting.

Wonderful and interesting spotting. I had no idea there was such a creature. I used to go hunt fossils and trilobites in Ohio over Easter Vacations when I was a child. It reminds me of them quite a bit.
