Fly - Rhagio

Fly - Rhagio
Buncombe County, North Carolina, USA

Moved from Flies.

Snipe fly.
I believe this is a snipe fly in the family Rhagionidae.

so would the Genus be "Rhagio" ?

Don't know.
I'm generally lucky if I can get a fly down to family level! I'm getting much better, though. If Martin Hauser comes by again, he will probably know the species, as that family is one of his areas of expertise

Yes it is a male Rhagio, but I'm not very good at species level in this family...sorrry about that
