Another western male Efferia. Would need you to send me this full sized shot Tom and I can have a closer look.

After carefully looking at Tom's full sized shot, I believe this is Pogonioefferia [Efferia] benedicti.

Herschel, thanks for taking the time to take a close look at the full sized picture, and determine it down to species.
