Wasp fly

Family Micropezidae


This stilt-legged fly appears like a wasp, holding its forelegs out to appear like antennae, which diptera usually hardly have.


This one is similar but the eyes don't match very well.

Nice find! The white front tarsi also help with the antennal illusion. Very neat.
