CENTRAL FLORIDA CRITTER OF THE DAY: Syrphid Fly (Ocyptamus fuscipennis)
These types of syrphids are also referred to as hover flies and likely mimic Ichneumon wasps.
Landed on the spent seeds of some native wildflowers to dry out wings in the early morning.
This one is considered “teneral” meaning recently emerged so still soft, and has not fully attained mature coloring.
They are beneficial. Larvae preys on softbodied insects including aphids.
