Hanging-thieves Robberfly (Diogmites salutans)

CENTRAL FLORIDA CRITTER OF THE DAY: Hanging-thieves Robberfly (Diogmites salutans)

As the name indicates, the hanging thief is diptera, predatory on other insects.

Shown on Florida Native Plant Tephrosia spp.

My take: http://www.beautifulwildlifegarden.com/i-was-robbed.html

From Aug 2012 with prey. The fact that it is a bee makes it questionable whether or not they are beneficial.
