mystery mimic fly - Monoceromyia floridensis

mystery mimic fly - Monoceromyia floridensis
Hickey's Creek Mitigation Park, Lee County, Florida, USA
April 9, 2009
this fly was missing wings on it's right side, but it looks like it might be getting ready to lay eggs

Moved
Moved from Ceriana.

Indeed Ceriini
Genus Ceriana!
Greetings,
Gerard

yes Ceriini
It has too many wing veins (can be made out barely), eyes too big, and the wrong antennae for Conopidae. they are tricky.

Probably a syrphid
See Ceriini; failing that Conopinae.

 
Spectacular antenna may aid in ID.
John's provided two excellent candidates. I lean towards Conopinae.
