Fly - Cyrtopogon montanus

Fly - Cyrtopogon montanus
In Westwood - elevation 5100ft, Lassen County, California, USA
April 28, 2008
Based on wing veins and antennae I think this might be a genus Xylophagus Fly. Again correction or confirmation welcomed - Thanks!

I found this fly drowned in the dogs water bucket in the back yard.

Also Moved tentatively
Moved from Robber Flies as this specimen appears to be the same species as my other specimen shown here:


Please see comments with this other specimen.

Moved
Moved from Xylophagus. No, sorry, this is a robber fly. I don't know which genus, though.

 
Thanks Keith
I appreciate any and all corrections! :)
