Hello. It looks like Tabanus quatuornotatus, but I don't sure. Do you have more angles?

Actually Tabanus spp. of quatuornotatus group have hairy eyes too. My doubts was exactly about the pubescense of the eyesWink Shape of the frontal calli and polished subcallus strongly suggests T. quatuornotatus (see here http://www.dipter...to_id=3393).

Seregiy, I think only two possibilities are on the table: (1) Eyes are haired, so T. quatuornotatus (no other species of this group in central Italy has three big black calli and polishes subcallus. (2) Flesh and light are playing any game with us, then eyes naked = T. glaucopis.
So, Justafly, can you enlarge pic of the right eye to see if the eyes are naked or haired.

eyes clearly haired - this is a female of Tabanus quatuornotatus.
> lower callus squared and dull black
> subcallus polished black
> 3 band eyes
> hairy eyes

Here in Britain it has been a very poor season for all insects. Most families of fly have been very scarce compared to some years ago. This is about the fifth poor season and it was the worst yet. Wha

May was very atypical and April. April was very cold - the coldest month in 30 years. And May was very rainy. But this does not explain itself why the decrease of insects. Or it is just a normal cyc

well I collect in those places since 2005, and it is perfectly clear there were several families I did not see this year, or even the rather common Tachinidae, for the current year I only saw dozens.

05.09.16 16:51
Well it should be compared to the insect diversity and numbers of that region for the last years/decades...

This year in Portugal there was a very clear decrease/waning number and diversity in all insect orders. Fewer tachinids than usual, for example. Fennel flowers are very scarce of insects these days.
