The robberfly (Diogmites angustipennis) is an extensive North American and South American group with a significant number of eastern species. They often perch close to the ground or on low vegetation and make fast forays, returning to nearly the same location. They are also called hanging flies due to their characteristic habit of dangling by their front legs when feeding. Orange, MA, USA.
