Looks like a good match for Exoprosopa fascipennis, can anyone confirm?

Moved from Bee Flies.

Your ID looks good to me, Tim
Hopefully, Joel or Andy will confirm. (I get a bit nervous with Florida flies, not knowing if there are variations and/or additional candidates.)

Good ID. Florida is a challenge. There are at least two local races of this species in Florida, plus odd forms of other widespread species.

Thanks Ron
with your confirmation I am comfortable enough to move it there.
