This little critter just landed right next to me. Never seen any kind of bee that looked like this. Help 🙂
Many species of Flower Flies or Hover Flies in the family Syrphidae mimic bees and wasps for protection. We believe we have correctly identified your Flower Fly as Palpada albifrons based on photos that are posted to BugGuide.
