This time you can believe me ;-)! Take a look at my suggestion above and compare the pictures in my links with yours and you will not see any differencies. Than you take this one: http://bugguide.net/node/view/559892 and compare with yours and you will see the differencies on the body and the wings. There are indeed many similar looking ones around.

there are yellow banded an black banded which r similar. . . so which is right???
