Tiger Bee Fly Xenox tigrinus

Description

These flies seem to love the heat--I often find them basking in the sun on torrid days. This one was found along the old Bynum Bridge in Chatham County, North Carolina on 16 July 2020. They are parasitoids of carpenter bees, Xylocopa species. Sometimes I see them investigating the edges of structures, perhaps looking for the nests of their hosts.
Xenox tigrinus - Tiger Bee Fly (female?)
bugguide.net/node/view/2803
I am guessing the genus name, Xenox, is an allusion to the alien-like appearance of the fly's eyes. (Greek Xenos = stranger, alien.) The name was given by entomologist Neal Evenhuis in 1985. Speculation: perhaps an homage to the 1982 movie, E.T.?
