The Peacock Fly gets its name from the way it holds its wings. This fly displays its wings perpendicularly from its body (like a Peacock displaying his feathers) and waves them while walking around. The body and wings are speckled black, white and gray. The eyes are reddish.
Mammoth Cave National Park, Kentucky. Found on a wall near the Visitor Center at the park. Mostly temperate forest habitat.
