One of the best weeks/weekends ever at the Texas Master Naturalist State Conference down in the Lower Rio Grande Valley!
This morning I didn't have any obligations, so I went out exploring just a bit by myself -- stopped by the next door McAllen Nature Center and the National Butterfly Center. So neat. :)

Got a decent series of this Beameromyia below Marshall Gulch on Mount Lemmon in the Santa Catalina mountains. Saw one displaying by bouncing in the air, the others were found by sweeping shin-high grasses or on twigs. I think they key out to B. occidentis in Martin 1957 (especially with the male showing the “C” shape). Interesting how this species has an apical swelling and upturn on the abdomen (especially visible in the male) kinda like Leptopteromyia. Specimens in collection (ethanol and pinned).
