I've collected these flies from June through September this year (2014). Can't say for certain when the photographed one was sampled, though. I ID these as Chaetopsis, but we are in a large expanse of corn, soy, and tree crops, and I'm not aware of any wetlands nearby. The guide says these are often misidentified, but doesn't suggest what else it might be. I excluded Euxesta based on the point on the 1st antennal segment.
