Broad Centurion (Chloromyia formosa)

This soldier fly has sexes that are very different in appearance. Both have a shiny green thorax, but the female has a blue-green abdomen, sometimes with a violet sheen, and the male has a bronze abdomen, so this is a male.

The eyes are covered in dense black hairs, which helps to distinguish it from the similar Sargus soldier flies
