Asilidae - Lestomyia n-sp
Red Hills Area of Critical Environmental Concern - Jamestown, Tuolomne County, California, USA

Moved from Robber Flies.

Lestomyia sp.
Yes, definitely a sp. of this genus, but unable to identify further... Lestomyia has many undescribed spp. (especially in Calif.!), and this is another one of them. Would need to see images of rear end of fly to say more (even to determine the sex). This is not a described (named) species, so can be called "Lestomyia n. sp."

Cheers, Eric.

Moved from ID Request.

Looks like...
Something in the genus Lestomyia. (south-western)
