Small Robber - Cophura Small Robber - Cophura

Moved from Stenopogoninae.

Moved from Robber Flies.

From Dr. Eric Fisher
Is definitely not Ablautus (and I would say it does have pulvilli ['toe pads']. This one looks very much like a Nannocyrtopogon sp. -- although none are known from that particular area (try to collect some of those!).

Cophura sp., fur group.
Bob Barber has recently sent me two females of this species from La Luz Canyon. This allows me to see some small details that change the ID to Cophura sp., in the fur group. Male specimens are needed for further ID.

It does look like it has fine or very thin pulvilli. I think you sent me this shot at home.

Moved from ID Request. Better here than in ID request for now.
