Unknown fliers
Hi Daniel,
Glad to hear that you’re up and running. I’ve taken a few shots of some flying insects that I’m unable to identify. You’re help is, as always, greatly appreciated. We found the first fly on the side of our pool. I’ve looked through your fly pages, and haven’t been able to find any matches to the first two fly pictures I’ve sent.
Thanks again!

Hi Yvonne,
Flies have just two wings. We are requesting Eric Eaton’s assistance with this Hymenopteran. Here is what Eric has to say: “The specimen in question is a sawfly, and it looks to be in the family Argidae, if the last antennal segment is very long, as it appears here. Argids include one recently-introduced species currently found ONLY in Ontario, and this may be it. Would like to have the submitter post it to Bugguide as well, if possible. Thank you. Eric”
