I spotted this on my front door this morning. I live in the South West. It is quite small and doesn't appear to be furry like a bee. Does anyone know what it is?
I think it is a House fly that has been infected by the fungus Entomophthora mucae.
Hope that is of interest.
Hi I am sure Jen is absolutely correct,fascinating picture with the white bands of the fungus so clearly marked.This is presumably where the fungus is either entering or exiting through the segments of the body?
Yuk! That's put me right off my supper!
Thank-you both though. Really interesting information.
