I photographed this robber fly today near Chicago IL USA. I'm pretty sure I'm looking at Laphria virginica (female), or perhaps Laphria thoracica. Help!
Thanks,

I have since learned this is Laphria flavicollis, due primarily to the yellow hairs on the scutellum. This according to Giff Beaton and Mike Thomas.

Grin Nothing better than a forum that runs itself! If only everyone answered his/her own questions... Although, better not. Otherwise we could close the forum and we would not see all those magnificent pictures! Wink
