Unidentified Bee Fly - Exoprosopa albifrons

Unidentified Bee Fly - Exoprosopa albifrons
Miller Canyon, Huachuca Mountains, Cochise County, Arizona, USA
July 11, 2009
Elevation 5,000. ft.

Moved from Exoprosopa.

Moved from Bee Flies.

Similar (?) fly from Santa Ritas
Anyone have thoughts on this fly? It looks, to me, similar to E. albifrons, but lacks the extensive white on the face:

Thanks for any assistance.

This is Exoprosopa. I think it's E. albifrons, a locally common fly restricted to the Huachuca Mtns, or thereabouts. Very Nice Portrait. Do you have any other views?

Other Views
I do not have any other views but could get them. As you state, they are common here right now. What angle or body part would be helpful? Thank you very much for the identification.

ID - more shots
Get a head shot from the front. The male E. albifrons has a shiny silver-white forehead, thus the name.

Additional images
I have posted a couple more images of what I believe is the same species here
