Yes...Thats why I joined Project Noah... Joseph you also getting help from others comment... I feel nice.. and Gordon too..!!
I happened to be researching on BugGuide for other ID's and found my Beefly and then looked up and saw your discussion. Quite a coincidence. Having fun yet?
Thats the aim of Project Noah, increase your knowledge with others help.
Your are right again, and let me say guys, I'm pretty impressed about how helpful you are! I really like to go out in the nature, and take shots like this one, but do not know too much about different spices of animals, plants etc.... right until now :) I'm really interested in knowing much more, and you help, the way this project works is wonderful.So, thank you really very much :)
Insects can be really tough to ID in many instances, but the discussion is always a really good thing. I've been mistaken way too many times...grin, so having others add their ideas is a very good thing! It's what makes this forum so useful.
Yes, I'm pretty sure Gordon is right!Thanks for your help guys!
Gordon you are right.
I would have to agree with Gordon. If you look at the Wikipedia picture for the Bombyliidae family, this subject is a pretty close match. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Grosse...
Yes its Bombyliidae you are right....go ahead...!!
I would have to agree with Gordon. If you look at the Wikipedia picture for the Bombyliidae family, this subject is a pretty close match.
See http://www.britannica.com/EBchecked/topi... as an example of one species of bee fly that resembles your photo above. I don't know if it is the same species, but it may be close.
So not a Bombyliidae?
valley carpenter bee
Wings were relatively small compared to the size of it's body
Yes gordon eyes telling its a fly..not beetle
You must be right!
May be Carpenter Bee...Wing are invisible due to fast motion...
This is one of the bee flies (family: Bombyliidae), but I'm not sure I can help beyond that. I'm somewhat familiar with these insects in North America, but we have nearly 800 species in this family and I'd suspect that there are hundreds of species in Europe as well.
Its must be a Weevil
:) thanks, but I'm unable to figure out, what kind of bug is it :)
