Hi .. i'm from Borneo.
Caught this one on a flower plant ... it's hover like a bee.
It is a Hoverfly right ?
Whatever it is, it is not (and I'm sure) a hoverfly. Fruitfly? Well, not my table - I am among the horseflies over here... we're all bloodsuckers and evil!
No shit !
My family have been telling me there are flies which bite around the house for years.
And they will whack anything that look like fly but post-mortem show they were either fruit fly or tiger moth.
This fellow has small short proboscis ... and I had let it go thinking it was just a hoverfly.
Ha ha ha ... thanks a lot.
But how about this one ?
Another type of horsefly ?
Probably a pipunculid. See this page (on which it says they do hover) -
