Caption: Adult seedcorn maggot (Delia platura) feeding on the leaf of a soybean plant (Glycine max). This fly is native to Europe but is found throughout the USA. It lays its eggs in freshly ploughed ground and the maggots feed on seeds and seedlings. The adults emerge in spring and mate within a few days. Photographed in Indiana, USA.
