Picture-Wing Profiles - Euxesta - male

Picture-Wing Profiles - Euxesta - Male
Tonopah Desert, Maricopa County, Arizona, USA
March 20, 2015
Size: 4mm
These are images of a Picture-winged Fly that I think is an adult male in the genus Euxesta. I'm including extra views to show certain features, even though most of them are blurry. The plant flower is a non-native Cardon Cactus, Pachycereus pringlei.
NOTE: This is the best view that I have of the side of his head and thorax.
Here is the image of a similar male, from Texas, for comparison: ♂

Close, at least
I'm not sure if it's a Euxesta. It is probably in tribe Lipsanini.

 
Thanks
John, it's hard to be definite when we don't know something, haha! All I know is that the pattern matching works great, on the BugGuide and all of these images should be easy to improve on. I will move them to tribe level for now. Thanks for your help!
