Fly to ID - Condylostylus - female

Fly to ID - Condylostylus - Female
Phoenix, Maricopa County, Arizona, USA
May 23, 2012
These are quite common in my yard, I am hoping it might be a predatory fly of some sort.

Moved from ID Request.

Looks like a female Condylostylus. It is a predator. More pictures would be useful because the species of Arizona are not well known. It may be Condylostylus longicornis, which has published records from Florida, California, and Mexico (and points south).

Maybe Condostylus, but not sure
