Subject: Flourescent Green Bee Fly?
Geographic location of the bug: Kansas
Time: 03:40 PM EDT
Your letter to the bugman: Hi! This bug is truly flourescent green. The head appeared to be orangish in color and does not match with any of the images I’ve found online as it is opposite the coloring of sweat bees, and doesn’t match the orchid bees.

Dear Flourescent Green Bee Fly Finder,
This fluorescent green fly is actually a Soldier Fly. There are several green genera with numerous similar looking species. We believe your Soldier Fly might be a male Hedriodiscus binotatus based on this BugGuide image. Males have larger eyes with no space between them. We would not discount that it might be a male Odontomyia cincta based on this BugGuide image.
