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

Some flies preserved in ethanol and then pinned often get the eyes sunken, how can this be avoided? Best answer: I usually keep alcohol-collected material in alcohol
