Soldier Fly

I thought this was a soldier fly but it doesn't seem to match any of the species I'm familiar with...

Re: Soldier Fly

Hi Jon
I think the shape of the yellow abdominal markings are pretty conclusive for a male O.ornata.

(If you need a more immediate response then you will have to go down the Facebooking Twitterer route - anything involving an 'App' seems to be favourable)

Regards
Neil
