We found this bug in our office.
It is very quiet and rather fast. One of the ladies that works with me said that it stung her.
What would it be?
Your coworker had an encounter with a blood-sucking Louse Fly in the family Hippoboscidae. They are generally found near wildlife or livestock. Your individual looks very much like an image tentatively identified as Hippobosca rufipes on ISpot.
