Description

Many of these small phorids walked alongside Neivamyrmex workers in raiding columns and some were also observed entering/exiting the entrance to a nest. Winged phorids were also observed hovering above foraging columns and landing/walking beside them. Based on the association with neivamyrmex and general appearance of these flies, an ID of Xanionotum seems likely.

Saw a fly land on my car during the day, I took this photo zooming in on it since I knew it will fly away if I got close to it. Once i got the photo and tried to move my phone closer, it flew away before I can get a closer look at it
