heleomyzid - Suillia

heleomyzid - Suillia
North Bethesda, Montgomery County, Maryland, USA
July 24, 2015
I can’t see all the features used in the Gill key to heleomyzids (1) but what I can see points to Suillia as does the key in MND (2). The Gill key also points to this being S. quinquepunctata but I’m not sure I can rule out S. longipennis using this photo because it doesn't show the gena. I was not able to get any photos from other angles.

Some help with the ID would be much appreciated. TIA.

Moved from Heleomyzidae.

i'll ask Dr Woznica to take a look at this and other pics
Moved from ID Request.

very much appreciated!
