Robber Fly - Mallophora fautrix

Robber Fly - Mallophora fautrix
The Woodlands, Montgomery County, Texas, USA

Having "very slim antennae tips" points to Mallophora over Laphria, so I'm guessing that. Can anyone help with further information and Identification? Thanks for any help!

This nice photo shows Mallophora orcina (also known as the 'southern bee killer').


Eric-- wouldn't this be M. fautrix instead of M. orcina, what with the all-yellow abdomen and the TX distribution?
