« Nova Cygni 1975 | Main | Robber Fly »


A fly, probably a female Graphomyia maculata.  My attention was first drawn to it by its rather striking spotty rear-end (see photo below).  The males of this species have a black and orange abdomen.

Both photos taken beside the top lake in Reading University grounds, Reading, UK, on 2008-08-30.
