Giant Blue Robber Fly

Blepharotes splendidissimus


The Giant Blue Robber Fly has the relatively small head, legs are not long but with broard abdomen. The body and legs is covered with short grey hairs. Whole body, includes eyes, abdomen and legs are in dark steel blue colour. Pair of Wings are tinted in steel blue as well.


I saw this particular one in my back yard (outer western suburbs of Sydney). It has a loud buzzing sound when flying.
