Hello!

I had never seen such a fly before, it looked like an 8-9 mm Ichneumonid! Not only the red and black "wasp tail" abdomen, even the white antennae bands of many Ichneumonidae were imitated. In the gallery I found Loxocera hoffmannseggi from the Psilidae looking very similar. Is this a male of it?
Running around on low vegetation in our garden today (northwest Germany).

Hello!

Is this one from today from our garden (northwest Germany) a female of the same species or of another (sylvatica? fulviventris?)? It has more red on the thorax. Length about 6-7 mm.

Are they so rare? I had never seen this genus before, but now it was the second specimen within some days - male and female.
Best regards,

You can see the first two antennal segments are short, so it is albiseta or aristata, i can't say. These are pretty common, whereas hoffmannseggi is a very rare eye candy !

And, as I wrote in http://www.dipter...d_id=75671, this male should already be in the gallery!
