Tiger Bee Fly? - Xenox tigrinus

Tiger Bee Fly? - Xenox tigrinus
Pensacola, Escambia County, Florida, USA
August 7, 2012
This bee fly was spotted on the railing of a wooden boardwalk on the Tarkiln Bayou Trail at the Tarkiln Bayou Preserve State Park. I think it might be a Tiger Bee Fly, Xenox tigrinus, but whatever it is, it will be a new BugGuide addition for Escambia County, as only one bee fly species has so far been reported from there. Any information will be greatly appreciated!

Moved from Bee Flies.

Yes
This is Xenox tigrinus. The wing pattern is distinctive, and it's the only representative of its genus in the East.

 
Thanks!
Thanks for the confirmation! Now we have two bee fly species documented for Escambia County, FL. We clearly need more BugGuide contributors in the Pensacola area!
