Extra-long-legged long-legged fly - Dactylomyia lateralis - female

Extra-long-legged long-legged fly - Dactylomyia lateralis - Female
Rotonda West, Charlotte County, Florida, USA
June 10, 2011
Size: 3.2 mm body length
Collected at UV light.

It has very elongate front coxae (~2/3 length of front femur) which makes me wonder if it is close to Neurigona, maybe even N. lateralis.
