5943 I am Michael, and I’m in South Florida. The specimen was retrieved mid March from a South Florida bathroom. I think it may have tried to attack me actually. Thank you.
This is a scuttle fly (Diptera: Phoridae). The only thing that they attack is decomposing organic matter; they are incapable of biting or stinging. Ed Saugstad, retired entomologist; Sinks Grove, WV.
