Machimus sadyates

I have photos of a number of Machimus photos that I believe may be this species including the ones included here, but I need to study these in more detail. I list this species here because it is found on a list of Wisconsin Asilidae in the University of Wisconsin collection.

Identifying characteristics

This species has entirely black hind femurs, front tibias that are over half yellow or reddish, metatibia that are brownish and black, and a dark mystax.
