I removed the bee because there was another photo of her, but I did not have the bee fly yet

Moved from Bee Flies.

Moved from Geron.

Moved from ID Request.

Bee is female Dufourea
Unfortunately I cannot help with the fly; hopefully someone else can :)

fly: Geron sp.

Could this be Phthiriini instead?
Doesn't look hunchbacked and wing veins look wrong for Geron


FWIW, I agree with Dr. Ascher.
