No bee has antennae as short

No bee has antennae as short as this, even if you can't see the distinction between 2 (Diptera, flies) and 4 (Hymenoptera, bees etc.) wings. The fore and hind wings of bees hook together, so it often looks as if they have only two wings, but they always have long mobile and usually angled antennae of 12-13 segments, while bee-mimicking flies have much shorter antennae, usually only 3 segments.
