Found on window inside house.
No interactions present.
I wondered about Sargus too, but the antennae don't look right. (At least nothing like S. bipunctatus which is the only one I know first hand.) They look more like a robberfly, but I can't see any piercing mouthparts either.
Yes, that is me not looking at the books again. Doesn't look like any asilid I know, and I can't see any mouthparts or 'beard'. I will wait for the experts (what I should have done earlier!).

Beris, isn't it?
I can't see the spines on the scutellum, which is why I went instead for Sargus.
Ah yes, I see your point. Worth a bit more scrutiny when I get the chance.
That looks good, John. Why not trump my ID? We don't get Chorisops up here, so I am relieved that I hit the right family if the wrong genus.
