Effarias  - Efferia apicalis - male

Effarias - Efferia apicalis - Male
Kisatchi National Forest about 5 miles west of Woodworth, LA, Rapides Parish, Louisiana, USA
August 5, 2018
Size: small
Side of a rocky road leading down to a stream crossing. Lots of flowers and pollinators. Sitting on rocks and sticks on the ground. Very small robber fly. I suggest Efferia apicalis because of the small size, thorax pattern, two white segments at the end of the abdomen, and the black hairs on the upper mystax, and yellow hairs on the lower mystax. Legs and body color fit as well.
