Lejops lineatus
The cone shaped very much produced face identifies this species. The orange on the abdomen identifies this as a male. Both sexes have the eyes separated but the shape of the frons is different in each but often difficult to discern in photographs.
Anasimyia has genus status in Europe where this species is labelled Anasimyia lineata and Lejops is reserved for Lejops vittatus but this is labelled Lejops lineatus in BugGuide. However, many North American entomologists. follow the European lead.
The subgenus is Eurimyia for this species.
