Hermetia illucens

Hermetia illucens
East Greenwich, Kent County, Rhode Island, USA
October 23, 2011
Size: 24mm
This was the second of four individuals found in our toilet over a two week period.
We had these really windy days that coincided with the toilet burping up small
amounts of decayed leaf matter and the occasional beast. I collected them as they
arrived and freed them into our compost pile.
