Asilinae: female; genus? Has ovipositor very much like Lecania, but lacks the characteristic "3 day stubble" (only very short, erect setae covering scutellum & scutum) of that genus; this fly instead w/ typical 'long setae' present on thoracic dorsum. Also lacks modified arista of Lecania group...

Grabbed an interesting prey item -- which I don't recognize either!

Cheers, Eric
