This fly (left) was hovering at the entrance of the nest of a Sphecidae wasp Sceliphron deforme (right). Apparently, it was waiting for an opportunity to gain access into the nest to parasitize the wasp larve/egg. It would be much appreciated if the fly can be identified.

I think it is an Amobia.

Thanks John. Previously in Hong Kong, we have a report that the nest of another Spehcidae wasp (Isodontia diodon) was infested by maggots of Amobia quatei Kuahashi which I have no idea how it looks like.

Do you think my fly here is also Amobia quatei or some other species?

This is a female and we would need to see male genitalia.

Amobia (i.e. penelopei) is a well known cleptoparasitoid of Sceliphrin ( google it)
