March Fly - Bibio femoratus - female

March Fly - Bibio femoratus - Female
Peachtree Corners, Gwinnett County, Georgia, USA
March 29, 2020
Size: ~ 9 - 10 mm head/ body
(Bibio sp.) (?) …possibly (Bibio femoratus) (??)

None of my shots did a very good job capturing the front tibial spines. Realizing that it was a different specimen for what it’s worth I found and collected a similar looking but deceased March Fly nearby in leaf litter. It was somewhat banged up and not suitable for photographing but I was able to take a closer look at the front tibial spines under magnification and they appeared to be of nearly equal length. (Thanks)
