Southern Bee Killer - Mallophora orcina

Southern Bee Killer - Mallophora orcina
North Palm Beach (Munyon Island), Palm Beach County, Florida, USA
June 20, 2014
Size: 20mm
Is it possible to tell from this photo if this is M. orcina? I usually see M. bomboides in my area but this fly seemed smaller and of somewhat different coloration. It was patrolling a coastal hammock on a small island in a lagoon.
