Only the second time in my life I’ve caught Nemestrinidae! (First was 12 years ago in Mongolia) Right at sunset as I was hiking back to my car along a ridge I heard a loud buzzing, figured it was just another Bombyliidae, then was pleasantly surprised when I saw the wing venation! And look at that gorgeous green sheen in the eyes. Specimen in collection.
Keyed out with the info on Bugguide and the Dankowicz fly guide, seems plausible.

Got a decent series of this Beameromyia below Marshall Gulch on Mount Lemmon in the Santa Catalina mountains. Saw one displaying by bouncing in the air, the others were found by sweeping shin-high grasses or on twigs. I think they key out to B. occidentis in Martin 1957 (especially with the male showing the “C” shape). Interesting how this species has an apical swelling and upturn on the abdomen (especially visible in the male) kinda like Leptopteromyia. Specimens in collection (ethanol and pinned).

I believe this is Four-spotted Palpita! Amazing translucent wings. Nearest reports seem to be southern Arizona. I assume this must be a migrant brought in by monsoon airflows from the south and east of here.

So far as I can tell unrecorded previously in California. Blank for this state in MPG, checked all BG images, and BOLD, is not mentioned occurring here in Powell, J. A. & P. A. Opler, 2009. Moths of Western North America, Pl. 23.42m; p. 179.

Members of the subfamily Coniopteryginae are recognized by the presence of only one r-m crossvein in the middle of the wing. Two genera can be found in Arizona, Semidalis and Coniopteryx, and these may be further separated by the position of the m-cu crossvein (see second pic, highlighted red); in Coniopteryx this crossvein is located anterior to the branching of vein m, whereas in Semidalis this crossvein emerges behind the fork on vein m3+4. Four Semidalis and four Coniopteryx species are known from southern Arizona.
