Two enigmas: First what is the name of the fly? Then what benefit is it to the flower to invest in the structure when fertilization is by pethonogenisis, ie it is self fertilized? Is the fly needed to move the pollen to the stigma?

For those who don’t know, the pollen does start to penetrate and grow into the stigma and down the stamen but then stops, for some reason. The ovum below never receives the DNA from the male pollen, but divides without it!
