Mallophora orcina again? - Mallophora bomboides
Archbold Biological Station - Lake Placid, Highlands County, Florida, USA

Size: 25mm, maybe more
I photographed another similar specimen the same day on another part of ABS. This one appeared more white and black compared to more yellow and black for the other specimen. I only got this one shot of this guy. I think that is a honey bee it is holding but I am not positive.

Moved
Moved from Robber Flies. Thank you very much Dr. Fisher!
