Amelia's Threadtails Neonura amelia:

On June 05 2005 I was lucky enough to find a number of significant records at the fabulous Halff Brothers Ranch west of Pearsall in Frio County, Texas (50 miles south of San Antonio), where the Frio River winds through thousands of acres of pristine gallery forest.  These finds included both species of Neonura - here's the lone N. amelia I saw among numerous N. aaroni:
