Scathophaga stercoraria, commonly known as the yellow dung fly or the golden dung fly, is one of the most familiar and abundant flies in many parts of the Northern Hemisphere. Excellent capture by Michael Anthony Brathwaite.
Mecoptera are sometimes called scorpionflies after their largest family, Panorpidae, in which the males have enlarged genitals that look similar to the stinger of a scorpion. Thanks again Michael Anthony Brathwaite for this stunning capture.
Bibio marci or St. Mark's fly is a fly from the familyBibionidae. Their common name comes from the fact that the adults usually emerge around St Mark's Day, 25 April. Credit to Michael Anthony Brathwaite.
