I'm thinking Microprosopa
can't find a key though; will have to dig around for descriptions

Only two species
According to the 1965 catalog only two species are likely.

The male of haemerroidalis has red genitalia. Did you find a male?

The other is flavinervis. Description (I live at the type locality).

thanks John
I don't know if I found a male, but I'm pretty sure I have one or two more in my wet vial. I'll take another look at these once I get it sorted.

Moved from Flies.
