Sawfly? - Coelioxys dolichos

Sawfly? - Coelioxys dolichos
Lafayette, Lafayette Parish, Louisiana, USA
August 29, 2014
Size: 18mm
Wasp or sawfly? or what? It was flying about bricks on the side of the house, like a cuckoo or potters wasp does when looking for prey. it does not appear to have haltares, so that makes me think it is not a fly, and mandibles look like they are pretty stout. Hoping for help with an ID.

Moved from ID Request.

looks like a female Coelioxys dolichos

looks good to me, but this would expand its data on BugGuide west by two states, as a first in Louisiana!
