Habitat:

In a shrub along walkway in urban park.

I'm thinking that this is right. (I wish I could remember, or had taken a better dorsal shot.)

Okay. Remember, a good dorsal gives you the best chance of an ID. These are the 4 dots I was talking about: http://bugguide.net/node/view/340636

Sadly, the rest of the images are all from the same angles, just less focus.

That helps a bit. Were there four orange dots in the middle of its body?

I've added a fourth picture, but the dof is really narrow. I hope it helps!

Do you have a shot of the whole body? Sure looks like Harmonia to me to, but I'd need a full body to confirm.
