A very small bee fly about 6 or 7 mm long with dense short bristles on the abdomen. The large eyes were a dull gold. Proboscis was about the smae length as the thorax. Wings were tinted.

This bee fly flew slowly and vertically down landing on the grass. It appeared to be totally black but could have had a few white bristles on the last few abdominal segments.
