Identification
The only eastern species of Cylindromyia with discal bristles on intermediate tergites. The western C. compressa usually has discals and can be distinguished by a second, small pair of bristles near tip of scutellum. (Both of these species have only one strong pair, compared to two strong pairs and a third weak pair in most other species.)
Range
Holarctic; most of North America
