Sicus Ferrugineus

Martin's post RE the conopid fly, Sicus Ferrugineus, reminded me of the photo I managed to get of this species last year at Crymlyn Burrows.

As well as the distinctive, curled under abdomen, the species frequently piggy-backs on each other. There doesn't appear to be any mating significance to this behaviour, but it is quite distinctive. It's also one of my favourite photo's from last year.
