Syrphid Fly
Genus Ferdinandea


Ferdinandea syrphid fly
Syrphid Fly larvae in the genus Ferdinandea feed on the sap at tree wounds, according to the information page
on Bugguide. This adult, which I found at Pineview Reservoir, Weber County, Utah was in very good condition, 
so I figure it couldn't have been too old , plus it was still hanging around home.  © Carol Davis 7-8-2013
