Saw this one on a cool October Day on the ground. There were no image postings of robber flies from Washington State that I could find, so I thought to add it to the database.

Laphria (Choerades) ferox male Ranger Jon; good addition to BugGuide!


Moved from ID Request.

I missed Laphria somehow duri
I missed Laphria somehow during my search. Where do I go from here? Will this get moved by someone into the correct category or is that my responsibility?

You can move it or an editor will, but that may take time. I suggest moving it to Laphria. Just tag your pic, go to Laphria, pick images tab, and then 'move tagged image' command should appear.

Try Laphria on this guy.
