Thank you Jakubko, I actually Realized that when I saw a smaller one Landed on my Hand, I decided to put in a jar and Look at it closer than the one I got a picture of, my Zoology teacher wasn't really sure which one it was. :)

Cisseps fulvicollis has a thorax the same color as the wings, whereas Ctenucha virginica has a blue thorax, making this Cisseps fulvicollis. Amazing find!
