Banana Stalk Fly (♂)

Telostylinus lineolatus


This is a banana stalk fly that i found in my backyard. This fly have long legs, short antennae, and triangular body. The size of this fly is about 6 - 10 mm long. I think this one is male because it have more elongated bodies, heads, antennae, and legs.


- Around the house and garden.


- Banana Stalk Fly belongs to Neriidae family of true flies (Diptera).
