Diptera: Micropezidae: Stilt-legged Fly
Right and background: Front view of a stilt-legged fly (Diptera:
Micropezidae: Taeniapterinae: Rainieria antennaepes). Note the white fore tarsi.
This is a female (pointed ovipositor). This was my first look at
a species in this family. See
BugGuide web site for more
photos from other photographers.
