Villa Bee Fly I - Villa sp.

Family Bombyliidae

This page contains pictures and information about Villa Bee Flies that we found in the Brisbane area, Queensland, Australia.

Body length 12mm 
This fly look like a bee and it was hovering near flowers. We first thought it was a Hovering Fly. However, from its wing vein, we are sure it is a Bee Fly belongs to Family Bombyliidae. The pictures were taken in Macgregor Bushland during early winter. We saw this fly only once.
