Once upon a Phyla nodiflora...
Seriously - once. This tiny fly
with its wings sticking straight out
paused for a moment beneath this
Phyla nodiflora flower
and then vanished. It has a black thorax with
white stripes, and a red abdomen with slight black markings. The plants
nearby were well chewed, so I suspect that this fly was preying on what
chewed it, but numerous gently turned leaves yielded no clues.
