Good afternoon,

this fly belongs most probably to the genus Empis, but anyone has an idea of what sticking out of its abdomen? Could it be some sort of parasite?

Thank you, Sezima

Hi Sezima, I think it's a male Empis trigramma - and it's not a parasite - that's one of the organs what makes him a male.
Greetings, Eric

Hi Eric,

well, that's embarrassing... I thought he was infected by a parasite whereas he is completely healthySmile

Thank you, Sezima
