Ice house lake, El Dorado County, California, USA

Finally I found several males flying like bumble bees. And Even after I caught them, I had no idea what genus they were... They are very rare and so I never saw one before...

Congratulations on your success...
What a great addition to the guide, Martin!

When you have a moment would you be willing to double-check the species description link I added to the guide page? I think it is a useful one, but sometimes I am unsure of the value of these older descriptions... Thanks.

 
Great link! This is very help
Great link! This is very helpful. I do not think that there is a newer description out there for this species. Thanks for looking up the original description!

Double Wow!!!
Any photos from the back?

Wow!
Congratulations on a great find.
