Mydas Fly - ? - Phyllomydas quercus

Mydas Fly - ? - Phyllomydas quercus
Hillsborough County, Florida, USA
May 11, 2010

Moved from Mydas Flies.

Phyllomydas quercus
This is another great shot of Phyllomydas quercus, which together with Phyllomydas parvulus is not too uncommon in Florida early in the season.

Moved from ID Request.

Went back and forth
between Mydas Fly and Soldier Fly... until I hit upon this:

I'm with you. :)

Thanks Ken.
Seems like a pretty good match.
