L. superba or L. conspicua.
L. superba or L. conspicua. Need to look at the ascoids (prominent, transparent sensilla on the antennal flagellomeres) at ~50x or higher. In superba, ascoids are paired and simple. In conspicua, they are paired and bifurcate. Very easy to distinguish once you've seen both.

Moved from Moth Flies.

Neat pictures!!

It was close to too small for my camera, but I took a lot so a few came out pretty good. I chilled it to get some extra time.
