Insect to identify
Hello. Just wondering if you could please identify this bug that landed in our yard (Toronto, Ontario, Canada) on the handle bars of a bike. The body is 5/8" long and the wingspan is just over 1". Thanks!
Charlotte

Hi Charlotte,
We located your Tiger Bee Fly, Xenox tigrinus, on BugGuide.
The larvae parasitize Carpenter Bees.
