Would it be possible to put at name to this Asilidae? It reminds me of Pycnopogon I photographed somewhere else.
Photographed at Col du Zad, Middle Atlas in Morocco on 31 May 2022.
Altitude 2200 meters
Thank you!
Johan

Pycnopogon sp. looks right.

Thank you, Chris!

I have now found this article,

https://www.researchgate.net/publication/359909389_Catalogue_of_the_Diptera_Insecta_of_Morocco-an_annotated_checklist_with_distributions_and_a_bibliography

A catalogue of the Diptera of Morocco.

It lists Acnephalum, not Pycnopogon, with 3 species.

Acnephalum Macquart, 1838
= Pycnopogon Loew, 1847 in Londt 2010
Acnephalum apiformis (Macquart in Lucas, 1849)
Acnephalum denudatus (Séguy, 1949)
Acnephalum fasciculatus (Loew, 1847)

So I assume it should be Acnecephalum then.

The Pycnopogon species were moved to Acnephalum by Londt, but most workers don't accept this (including myself).
