Interestingly, if I download the pic from my camera and make it small it will not attache. If I download from google photos, it will attach. (no spaces in the file names, smaller than 100 kB, 600 px max, both cases)

A small Gymnosoma, maybe a female G. nitens?

No, for starters, it is a male, check the dusting on thorax.
And definitely not nitens, likely a small male clavatum.

Thanks! This one looked very odd compared to the normal Gymnosoma I see. I thought males would always have a predominantly orange abodmen, but apparently not always.
