Fly - Dioctria

Fly - Dioctria
Sunderland, Franklin County, Massachusetts, USA
June 20, 2009
Robber Fly, I presume. This can be frassed if it's not identifiable beyond family.

Moved
Moved from Flies.

Check Mydas flies
They do look like robbers, but have neat antennae to make up for the absence of hairy faces and thorny legs. Nice find!

 
No, it is an asilid.
I know because I've shot images of this one myself, and they are w-a-a-a-y smaller than any mydas fly:-) Genus of this one is Dioctria.
