I was wondering if you could identify this fly for me – I haven’t been able to figure it out. It was a little smaller than a regular house fly. Found it sitting calmly on my car windshield a few days ago.

Dear Dakota,
We believe we have identified your Deer Fly as
Chrysops fulvistigma, by matching the photos on BugGuide.  The genus page on BugGuide gives detailed instructions for taking photos of four different views of specimens whenever possible to assist in proper identification.  It is possible we have the species wrong, but we are relatively confident with the genus.
