Hi All

Another fly from an old estate, near a lake, also sheep faring in the locale.

I think this is the right fly but there maybe others that are similar that I haven't found.

Sorry for the bang average photos, the fly wouldn't sit still for a second and the autofocus struggled with the iridescence.....

Could someone ID please?

Thanks, Gareth

Hi Gareth, Sargus iridatus has darker, blackish wings and black feet. I think this one is a female Chloromyia formosa.
Greetings, Eric

Feet (as in “tarsi”) are dark in Ch. formosa as well, otherwise you would have Ch. speciosa.
