I saw this fly today, but could not identify it, despite the red, pointed tail end. Has anybody got any ideas please?
No interactions present.
Looks like a wasp species that hasn't fully emerged from its pupal case. Hopefully someone on here can ID it for you.
I hope so!
Have had a further look at this 'fly' enlarged and it looks as if the 'wasp' might be attacking something beneath it, which has a pointed red rear end. Or, as you say above. Hope somebody knows the answer.
