and distribution would make this, I think, T. maculipennis . I just happened to look through my images of this genus and came across your photo. I'll look at this again shortly.

T. maculipennis
Good call, Hartmut. We don't seem to have any of these in the collection, but this matches Hall's description of T. maculipennis for the visible features and I don't see anything else in his revision that would fit.

T. maculipennis
Thanks, Joel, it does indeed match Hall's description of this sp., and his is the last revision of this complex (see reference on INFO page).

Moved from Bee Flies.
