banana stalk fly


An unidentified species of banana stalk fly.


Spotted in a large semi-urban yard and garden in close proximity to a disturbed patch of remnant forest.


Definitely not a stilt-legged fly (Micropezidae) with those seriously englarged fore tibia but a banana stalk fly (Neriidae ). One would think those aforementioned swollen tibia would give it away...
