I had a lamp out last night to try and attract moths, and found this guy as I went to put it away. Some sort of fly?
No interactions present.
Definitely not this species of Soldierfly, which is very different, as you can see from the pictures on the carousel.
My Flickr photos...
Thanks! I wasn't convinced! Thought it could be a male, just looking duller, as the picture was taken in the dark. The eyes do look different, but in some pictures of Chloromyia they touch and others they don't.
