Moved
Moved from Fruit Flies. Book says it likes sunflower.

 
Wing pattern looks good

 
Use with caution
Wing pattern in the genus is mildly dimorphic. That reference does not separate females of biseta and nigricornis; the characters to do so were not published until 1983. Foote 1993(1) notes that the records in Foote and Blanc 1963 (your link) include a misidentification.

 
Thanks for the update.

Very nice photo of a female.
I'd guess Trupanea sp., but am not an expert and don't have a wing pattern chart for Utah. Hopefully, Martin will see and comment.
