Moved from Stichopogoninae.

This is Stichopogon catulus.

Moved from Robber Flies.

From this angle
Does appear to be a Stichopogon. Three western species in AZ that I have not seen. Revision of this NA genus in progress from Dr. Barnes at the UA Fayetteville.

Reminds me of Stichopogon - one of the experts will be able to say for sure.
