Moved from Geron.

Bee flies
These appear to be the genus Geron, as are (1) and (2). Distinctive characteristics of this genus are the humpbacked appearance, the conical shape of the abdomen, long antennae with a tapered 3rd segment, and the wing venation (info from Hull's 1973 Bee flies of the world).

Hello Joel,
