Moved from Flesh Flies. ID'd from specimen, now a photo-voucher. Thanks Aaron.

A species apparently limited to coastal areas.

 
Thanks!
I've been looking forward to this ID. I'm not surprised it's new for the guide like so many of my coastal fly species.

 
Luckily
it's fairly distinctive.

Apparently I'm not receiving email updates from BugGuide...

 
I had that problem once
Last year, I somehow accidentally changed my settings. You should be able to get it to work by editing your account page. Otherwise, beats me.

 
Weird
I got an email about this response but not your first one. /shrug
