Chloromyia

Definitely not this species of Soldierfly, which is very different, as you can see from the pictures on the carousel.

Thanks! I wasn't convinced!

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.
