Anthomyia illocata root maggot fly anthomyiidae mosca branca

Anthomyia is a genus of fly in the family Anthomyiidae. They look rather like small houseflies, but commonly have conspicuous black-and-white patterning. This appears to be a mild form of aposematic coloration, though they do not appear to be distasteful unless they have eaten something offensive to the predator and have loaded their guts with it.
