(tl;dr: Are there any kind of black flies known to have a stringer and bite people?)
Anyone have any kind of idea where this might have come from?
I was bit by a very large black fly earlier in the day, then around 4 hours ;ater at a different location the same size kind of fly stung me in my upper arm (pic related)
I am thinking that this may have come from some weird pheromone thing similar to wasps, as the second attack was completely random (the first, I swatted the fly and provoked it).
I've never had inflammation of this kind before, and where the original fly bit me, on my finger, it has bloated up to the point that I can't even make a closed fist. The stinger of the second fly was stuck in me about 2cm (half an inch)
