Oké...I am not Stephen, but looking at this one for some time, I still have doubt what it could be.
Botanophila of Delia
The long pv + av on the hindtibia and strong av on the midtibia makes it not easy.
Maybe Stephen can give his opinion.....

I'm not sure about the face, the rest looks like Paradelia intersecta.

Species with mouth parts that appear to be 'similar', like Sargus, do feed on honeydew. I have never seen Hermetia in nature...

18.09.15 16:42
Thanks Paul, some sites report that it don't have functional mouth part, other sites say it feed nectar, some publications say it "probably" feed nectar and it's a pollinator.

18.09.15 10:57
Sounds like it might be. Do sites that 'say not' state that they do feed or don't they mention anything?

14.09.15 19:42
Question: is it true that the Hermetia illucens don't have functional mouth part? Some sites say yes and some other say not. It's a bit confused. Thanks Smile
