Found near our grass clippings under tree. No clue what this is please help.
This Thing has been on our back burner as we have tried unsuccessfully to identify it. We are pretty certain we have a similar posting buried somewhere in our archives among the nearly 25,000 postings we have made in the last 17 years, but we have not been able to locate it. We believe this is the immature stage of a Fly in the order Diptera, but we cannot provide any internet citations at this time. Perhaps one of our readers will help to identify this Thing.
Update: Thanks to Christopher Taylor who sent a BugGuide link to a Robber Fly Pupa.
