This nice fly was on the Bolivian shore of Lake Titicaca, at Yumani. The date was 6 December 2012.

ID help will be appreciated!

I think Sarcophagidae. Some of the tropical species are more colorful.

Thanks, John. Oh, and I realized I have a measurement for this fly, 10 mm from the front of the head to the wing apex.

Thomas Pape identifies the genus as Microcerella, and states it is a genus that is often golden pollinose, but he has never one as extensively golden as this one. This is a female.

& Thanks again, John.
