It is as big as a carpenter bee and the rufous flanks remembered Xylocopa frontalis, but with only one pair of wings is nothing but a big fly. It belongs to the family Asilidae, known as assassin or robber flies. This one is a bee robber fly since it frequently preys on honey bees. It causes important losses to beekeepers in the Pampas region
