Flew into my truck - Tabanus nigripes
Alafia River State Park, HIllsborough County, Florida, USA
September 16, 2007
Size: 13 mm
I am fairly certain this is T. nigripes. While the eyes aren't necessarily a very good ID, I know it is not one of the many others that I have posted based on that fact. I am making ID on face shots. These eyes show very little color. It has very white markings on the abdomen and distinctive stripes on its thorax.
