Longlegged Fly w/ prey - Neurigona
Springfield, Fairfax County, Virginia, USA
May 31, 2005
Size: ~4mm
Photographed on a hydrangea feeding on a mite.

Moved from Neurigona.

Cf. carbonifer
The key in Robinson 1964(1) suggests N. carbonifer or N. floridula, two widespread species with indistinguishable females.

I love this shot!

Moved from Longlegged Flies.

This female specimen most probably belongs to the genus Neurigona.
