Coordinator notes: This looks like it is the first record of this species for the BAMONA database. Please consider submitting the photo for the species page--one is needed and this is excellent. Also, this sighting looks like a new TX record for the MPG species page, so it would be good to submit the record there as well. Great find, thank you for submitting this. SAT
