Male Fall March Fly

Dear Paula,
This is a male Fall March Fly, probably
Bibio longipes based on this description on BugGuide:  “Males are all black with swollen hind tarsi and are hard to distinguish from Bibio slossonae, the other common fall-flying species.”  BugGuide also notes:  “Large swarms consisting of males are common in the fall.”
