Moved
Moved from Robber Flies.

Question.
Was the species caught on branch tips/ high grass or in low ankle level grass?

 
Sweeping
People were seeing these on the tips of branches in the high grass and weeds, but I caught this one while sweeping along the edge where the mowed grass meets the high weeds so I can't say for sure on this particular individual.

 
Holcocephala fusca
Holcocephala fusca. The hind basitarsus and hind tibia are smaller than hind femur when they should be ~35% larger.
