Celyphidae by melvynyeo Celyphidae by melvynyeo
This cutie is a fly that mimic beetle, commonly called Beetle fly :) Taken at night in Singapore.

Quote from en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Celyphid…
Celyphidae, commonly known as beetle flies or beetle-backed flies, are a family of flies (Order Diptera). About 90 species are known from the Oriental and Afrotropic biogeographic regions.

Celyphidae are small to medium-sized and easily recognised. The scutellum is enlarged, forming a protective shell over the abdomen, giving them a beetle-like appearance. Also, like many beetles, Celyphidae are often shiny or metallic in color. The wings, when at rest, are folded beneath the scutellar "shell".
