Genus Scellus


long-legged fly
We found a bunch of these hanging out near the
stables at Garr Ranch on Antelope Island. They
look like flies on stilts.  Carol Davis 6-2-2019

long-legged fly
Long-legged flies resemble the much larger Robber Fly but this
little guy has a squatty body.  Found on Antelope Island. According
to the experts on Bugguide, Scellus species are associated
 with salt or alkali flats.
