bee-like fly with orange thorax - Pterallastes thoracicus
Springfield, Virginia, USA
August 25, 2004
Sitting on a yellow flower, this fly was fuzzy like a bee and had a bright orange thorax. Probably can't tell from the photo, but the hairs on the thorax were somewhat shiny, giving the fly a golden look in the right light. Any help in identifying is appreciated.
