This is from Cordoba, Argentina, but I also saw the same species in Buenos Aires. Villa sp.? Maybe Villa alternata? (Villa alternata is present in Argentina?)

Villa alternata is North American. Several other species of Villa are recorded from Argentina.

I am unfamiliar with North American and South American Villa.
I try to collect books and keys so that I have a well rounded education.
I will work on getting an id but it could take awhile.
