Sunday Bugs: Inopus rubriceps

The entomological experts at the California Department of Food and Agriculture have determined that this is not a robber fly.  It is an Inopus rubriceps, an invasive Australian native introduced over 50 years ago into the San Francisco Bay Area. It feeds on grasses, and is a moderate sod pest in California and a sugarcane pest in Australia.
