Robber fly with two names

These two linked photos have inherited different identifications, presumably due to their comment history. I'd say they're both Cyrtopogon falto, what with the golden mystax, half-red tibiae, corner spots of pollinosity on the tergites, brown-striped scutum pollinosity, and anteriorly pollinose scutellum. They are certainly not Heteropogon. We have an empty page for C. falto, perhaps these were meant to go there but got lost en route?

moved; thanks, Tristan
but please leave this comment directly under the first photo(1)

Oh, ok.
