Twofer Fly - Acreophthiria

Twofer Fly - Acreophthiria
Silverado Canyon, Orange County, California, USA
March 28, 2014
Badly shot on the same bloom with two other species, almost as badly rendered.

Moved from Phthiriinae.

Thanks, Joel.

Moved from Flies.

Phthiriinae? (Don't try to spell it. Cut and paste.)

I'll bet you're right, John.
Yeah, that word is even hard to look at. Really!

This looked like none of the Phtooies of my acquaintance, but it certainly resembles many of the posts here. (Those I'd shot earlier were lot smaller, slimmer, and colored differently.)

Thanks heaps!
