There is another small robberfly–3 or 4 mm long, which seems to be fairly common. I do confess that I never noticed them before last year, however. It is Holocephala. There three very similar species in the Eastern U. S., and this one is apparently H. fucsa.
This one, like Cerotainia albipilosa, is also a very effective hunter.
For lunch we have a small fly (top), a winged aphid, and probably a small wasp (bottom). This fly seems to prefer the tips of stems of grass or sedges, or the stems that remain from last year’s weeds.
