Moved from Tabanus.

More likely
to be sulcifrons. 3 species are almost identical, abdominalis, limbatinevris, sulcifrons. I don't believe abdominalis has been recorded from Indiana.

Is there a reference I can check to determine with certainty which this is?

I have placed 2 important references on the Tabanus sulcifrons Info page, qq.v.

I looked at the Burger paper and this would seem to be T. sulcifrons.
