Hi everyone, welcome back to our insect series. Today we have a “flower fly”, toxomerus marginatus species. There are quite a number of different flower flies but without a specific name for each species so are differentiated by their Latin names. No idea why that is though. Many flower flies look like bees or wasps and it can be very hard to tell the difference. This tiny flower fly is about 3/8 inch long and can be found from July to September. Have a great day everyone and God bless!
