Yum... - Machimus antimachus - female

Yum... - Machimus antimachus - Female
Columbia, Boone County, Missouri, USA
July 15, 2009
Size: 20 mm
I was lucky that this beauty had prey... Couldn't fly off too far. Any ideas?

Moved from Machimus.

I believe that from the mainly
yellowish legs, with the black spot on about half the front-side of the mid tibia (and some other marks in Eric Fisher's key), that this is Machimus antimachus.

Moved from Robber Flies.

Asininae subfamily
Looks like a true Machimus female.
