Here is a nice photo and the prosternum is the. Filter flies are often associated with sewage beds, where larvae feed on sludge–like organic matter. They are also known by a variety of names; drain fly, sewage fly and moth fly are a few examples. Tan coloured body appears as grey. Wings densely covered in hair and held tent–like over the body when at rest. Eggs hatch 1–6 days.

    Tachinid Flies Parasitism, a reproductive strategy not typically associated with flies, serves as a key trait uniting the large and diverse fly family Tachinidae, better known as tachinid flies. With a world wide distribution of some ten thousand species, the tachinids have been loosely organized according to common parasitic strategies along. The Dune Tachinid Fly, Germaria angustata (Zetterstedt), is a black, bristly, medium-sized fly in the family Tachinidae. The second segment of the antennal branch (arista) is elongated and the third aristomere is flattened side-to-side; these two features give the arista a distinctive, elbowed appearance which helps to identify this species.
