Submitted by: Stott Noble
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: At porch light. just over 2 cm in length.

Verified by: stomlins701
Verified date: January 08, 2017
Coordinator notes: Based on range (incognita seems to be more coastal in SE) and the lack of a distinct dot line on the HW (according to bugguide.net, this separates incognita from L. scirpicola--scirpicola is immaculate), I believe this is L. scirpicola. SAT
