Sharp-dressed Sharpshooter

At the beginning of the month, I spotted a nymph Broad-headed Sharpshooter. Since then, I have been looking, relatively diligently, at this same patch of mugwort in hope of seeing the adult form. And I must say, “Braod-headed” is bit utilitarian:
Oncometopia orbona.

This is why I leave the house.

      Forwarding the email should do the trick. Or copy the url of the original post and send that.
