Moved from Robber Flies.

Beauty
Of a female Stenopogoninae member in far western OK. May be a new species for that area. Does not look like it is in Ospriocerus.

Will forward to Dr. Fisher.

 
Scleropogon picticornis I bel
Scleropogon picticornis I believe (always with the polished side-stripes on the abdomen).

 
Thanks
Apparently impressively variable in the colors involved in those side markings.

Moved for expert attention.
