  1. I have a book that covers insects and they mention the similarity between bees syrphid flies in the fly section but then in the intro page to bees it was still fly! Hate it when that happens. I even had to double check with an actual entomologist to make sure I wasn’t crazy.

  2. do you remember the name of the book? We should notify the Entomological Foundation, so they don’t recommend it to teachers.

  3. I turned it into a lunch break game of spot the bee mimics. I think I need to practice more, I was only certain that 9 of them were flies. Of course before I started reading your great blog I would have thought they were all bees.
