Bee Fly - Dipalta serpentina
Lake Waterford, Pasadena, Anne Arundel County, Maryland, USA
July 15, 2007
There were 7 or 8 of these in a about a square foot area of sparse grass/weeds and sandy open patch in the woods. Another, smaller individual (about half the size) was attempting to land on this one which is why I am indicating a female. There were 5 large indivduals all resting on vegetation and 2 or 3 smaller individuals constantly buzzing about. Is this Dipalta serpentina?
