Asilid - Lestomyia
Yosemite National Park, Mariposa County, California, USA
June 22, 2008
Size: 1.5cm or so
I think this might be in Asilinae, but I'm not sure. What are the characteristics to look for to sort Asilids to subfamily? I don't think it's a Promachus, it seemed much too small for that, hopefully someone can ID this mating pair. If it helps it was found on rocky soil/sand near Sentinel Dome at about 5000+ feet.
