Thanks. Interestingly, BG has no entries for Texas for that genus. I guess I'll upload this picture for identification there.

What's up with the spellings? BG has a note on how to distinguish Gymnochiromyia from Chyromya. The first part, "gymno" obviously refers to the naked portion of the scutellum. So then why is the rest spelled differently? A screw-up on the part of the taxonomist?

In the early 1900s some spelled the name Chiromyia.
