This 1 1/2” long hobo hitched a ride on my wife from the C&O Canal (Potomac River, near Point of Rocks, MD) to our house this morning. We’ve never seen anything like it, and would like to know what it is. Thanks in advance!

Dear B. Saunders,
You are correct that this is a Robber Fly, and we believe we have properly identified it as a Red Footed Cannibalfly,
Promachus rufipes.
