Wingless Fly

Wingless Fly

Dear Sbro,
This is definitely a Fly and it does not have any visible wings, but we don’t believe it to be a wingless species.  We suspect it is either a mutant or that it has experienced some trauma that resulted in the loss of the wings, but we are posting your image in the event that someone with better identification skills than our own can provide a species name and a theory on the winglessness.

  1. Could it be simply newly emerged and not yet finished inflating its wings? Whatever the cause for the winglessness, it is certainly some kind of flesh fly (Sarcophagidae).

    I saw these in Nashua, NH, Summer of ’95 and me and my Mom have been trying to figure it out ever since. They’d crawl Up the wall. Down to Up. They were slow, defenseless and wingless.
