[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Gymnosoma is a genus of flies in the family Tachinidae.
The name "Gymnosoma" literally translates as "naked body", and presumably refers to the fact that some species in the genus are less conspicuously bristly than most species of flies in the family Tachinidae.
