Hi I am trying to figure out what type of insect this is, we have had several of them in and around our pool.
Signature: Thanks Lora

Mydas Fly

Dear Lora,
Your image is quite blurry, but we believe we have identified this Fly with an orange abdomen as the Mydas Fly
Stratiomydas lividus based on this BugGuide image.  Of the genus, BugGuide states:  “A single species in our area” and it has a range of “AZ to Costa Rica + Peru.”

Location: Peoria, Arizona
