How you want your letter signed: Tania Morkel
It is a Fly, order Diptera. Not sure of family. We need more time to research.
Thanks for getting back to us with a correct identification. We found images of the Yellow Dung Fly on Wildlife Insight, but we also found the species, with the common name Golden Dung Fly, on BugGuide, a North American site, where it states the range is “throughout North America and the world.”
