Moved from ID Request.

I've only seen these that one time, five years ago, but I saw the resemblance right away. I'm sure these are from some kind of fly, but still have no idea beyond that.

Did some looking around.
They resemble these...

...which, unfortunately, have yet to be identified.

Please click on "edit"...
...and add the sighting date to the Date field.

Thanks--and welcome to BugGuide!

Thanks for the welcome - and for the reminder about adding the date. I certainly appreciate all the work that has been done here at Bugguide. It is an invaluable resource.
