Interesting Cerioidini - Polybiomyia townsendi - female

Interesting Cerioidini - Polybiomyia townsendi - Female
Near Barnwell, eastern New York Mountains, Mojave National Preserve, San Bernardino County, California, USA
August 2, 2015
Still nectaring at the tiny axial flower here.

This image gives a sense of the markings on the face (i.e. dark brown medial stripe, and narrower stripes near lower lateral edges)...and agrees well with Plate I, Fig. 4 here for P. townsendi (even though the figure dipicts a male).

For more details on this post, see remarks under 1st image of the series.
