Thread subject: Diptera.info :: is this a Tachina fera?

OK, it would be nicer to be able to see the front feet - they are black/dark in magnicornis
and pale in fera
. I would say that it isn't a very good photo to have on Wikipedia because it isn't easily identifiable as T.fera
... better to have one that shows all of the salient features :)
Saying that, I keep looking at the width of the frons and, assuming that it is a male, it does look very wide, which would suggest magnicornis
