any idea what kind of bug this is. its a fly, but it puts its wings upright and walks around…
We have not had any luck with an identification, however, we are filing this under Fruit Flies because that is where we believe it belongs.
Update: July 28, 2012
No sooner had we posted this than Jacob H. wrote in with a comment inquiring if it might be Callopistromyia annulipes, the Peacock Fly, one of the Picture Winged Flies. An image on BugGuide confirms that identification. BugGuide also confirms: “recently found in Europe.” Picture Winged Flies resemble Fruit Flies.
Hello Mr Marlos,
Thanks for the answer, never seen a flying bug put its wing straight up..
