These
are late season Asilinae members. The golden red mystax and the red black red legs help. The genitalia are very distinct under the scope compared to Machimus.

Moved
Moved from Robber Flies. Paul, you seemed to have the ID (and to know your robber flies!), so I went ahead and moved your images to this species. Apologies if this is not what you wanted.

I was actually looking at this genus, trying to ID another robber from Pilot Mountain, NC, and I came across your images.

 
Great! I have some specimens
Great! I have some specimens too, and some are to go to Torsten Dikow for his DNA work.

 
and if I may ask your opinion?

Do you think it is Neomochtherus latipennis, or am I totally off-base?
