Tachinid Fly

Tachinomyia sp.


Fairly large fly. Light head, grayish thorax, abdomen black with white bands. Long hairs on abdomen.


Woodland. Connetquot State Park, New York.


This fly kept crawling into the groundcover. My best guess for a Genus at this time.

No species ID suggestions

Good shots Tamar. Worth the exercise. Long abdomen on it.

I just wish it would have held still enough for me to get a better picture. I must have been chasing this fly around for at least 5 minutes. Haha!
