Moved from Vermileo.

I think this is probably V. opacus
From the practically hyaline wings...per the keys in Pechuman(1938) and Leonard(1930).

Also, Martin mentioned in his comment under the 1st image that V. opacus has white palpi, and V. comstocki has black palpi. It's clear the mouthparts are white in the photo here (and in the curated image for this LA Co. Museum of Natural History here).
