Interesting Rhipiphorus...that can actually be identified with confidence! :-) - Ripiphorus epinomiae - Female
Near Little Alkali Lakes, off Benton Crossing Rd, Mono County, California, USA
August 7, 2017
Together with pedicel and scape, there are 8 clearly visible flagellomeres (or "rami") in the pectinate antennae of this female...yielding the diagnostic "10 antennal segments" for females of R. epinomiae.

See the remarks under the 1st image of this series for more info.
