Looks very much like Tolmerus cf atricapillus, male. In march? That would be very early for the rest of Europe. According to Fauna Europaea the species is not known from Portugal.

Species with mouth parts that appear to be 'similar', like Sargus, do feed on honeydew. I have never seen Hermetia in nature...

18.09.15 16:42
Thanks Paul, some sites report that it don't have functional mouth part, other sites say it feed nectar, some publications say it "probably" feed nectar and it's a pollinator.

18.09.15 10:57
Sounds like it might be. Do sites that 'say not' state that they do feed or don't they mention anything?

14.09.15 19:42
Question: is it true that the Hermetia illucens don't have functional mouth part? Some sites say yes and some other say not. It's a bit confused. Thanks Smile
