Fly with flaring on feet - Cyrtopogon callipedilus

Fly with flaring on feet - Cyrtopogon callipedilus
Hurkey Creek, Riverside County, California, USA
August 23, 2002
Size: ~ 10 mm
This is the fly that I discussed with Rick Rogers at the Bugguide Gathering 2013. Can't recall it's name.

Moved
Moved from Robber Flies.

Cyrtopogon
Actually, this is a Cyrtopogon from the callipedilus group (file under C. callipedilus itself). They're the only ones out there with those crazy white and black ornamentations on the foretarsi and mesotarsi. Stunning flies.

Display legged
Male in Heteropogon or in some close CA Steno relation that I don't know.
