Insects/Bugs/Bees/Butterflies - Robber Fly - Giant Robber Fly
Class:Insecta Order:Diptera Family:Asilidae Genus:Promachus


I was astonished when I discovered this monster at Kauffman Legacy Park. It acted like a dragonfly but was too stubby and had fly eyes. I didn't manage to get a good picture of him which is tragic because he is remarkable looking with that yellow beard and mighty hump.

All species pages are currently being updated with more useful descriptions and information.
