Hi Al, I think Machimus (Tolmerus) cingulatus is correct. Resembling is M. cowini and difficult to distinguish but as we can see the posterior yellow stripe on forefemur it is most probably cingulatus.

NB: it's better to place your queries for robberflies in the Asilidae forum to attract the experts.
