CENTRAL FLORIDA CRITTER OF THE DAY: Syrphid Fly (Palpada sp. likely agrorum)
New species for me. This one is considerably smaller than others I have seen in the genus.
They are Bee mimics. Other common names: hover fly; flower fly
As a member of the Tribe Eristalini the larvae live in organic rich water.
