Mating Bow Legged Bugs

Dear Che,
These are not mating Flies in the order Diptera.  Rather they are mating True Bugs in the suborder Heteroptera, and based on this BugGuide image, they look to us like mating Texas Bow Legged Bugs,
Hyalymenus tarsatus, a species that BugGuide indicates ranges from:  “CA-AL to Brazil.”
