In my recent post on aphids and their predators, I shared photos of two types of syrphid fly larvae that I am seeing. A few days later I was lucky enough to get this photograph of an adult syrphid fly, looking for a place to lay eggs on my milkweed.
Going by the Latin name of Ocyptamus fuscipennis, there is no common name for this syrphid fly. I am pretty sure that this is the adult form of the "gray slug" syrphid fly larva that I see munching on oleander aphids.
Here is a closeup of this individual....
What predators are you seeing munching on YOUR aphids?!
