Robber Fly - Neoitamus flavofemoratus - Female
Amherst, Massachusetts, USA
June 4, 2004
Photographed in a field near our house. The markings on the legs and abdomen (along with it's habitat) match with the genera Neoitamus as listed on Cedar Creek's site.

Troy, I noticed you had a shot of a similar species as well:

I wonder if the range on this gets as far south as Georgia?

Ommatius tibialis
See if the picture I just submitted is the same as your bug, if so, I am in Vero Beach, Florida

This appears to be Neoitamus flavofemoratus. N. orphne has a black fore femora. Lovely shot. Yes, these reach Georgia.

Thanks Herschel!
It's nice to have some of these Robbers identified:)
