A fly of some kind? Never seen legs quite like that. Maybe ~18-20 mm long.
My guess would be a Dipteran, yes. But what do I know?
I believe it to be a Robber Fly of genus Polacantha or similar.
Sure looks like it. Thanks.
Are those similar to bott flies?
Do you mean Bot Fly? If so, not really, other than that both are True Flies (Dipterans).
