the abdominal marking and general wing pattern are both good for the genus, but this may be an undescribed species - it's not covered in a recent review of species - https://www.researchgate.net/publication/330862078

Looks like a female of *Bacotoma binotalis*, which is photographed by @dhfischer in the observation below (second photo; the first being a male) https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/70238991 The review has an illustration of the abdominal markings of the males, but misses out on the females.
