I saw this one great photo on net and I think this is a must so I think to show here. This is really a cactus fly! Smile Impressive!

Taken on 1 Jan 2004 somewhere in Equador - anonymous photo?

But it is curious to see this tachinidae fly. If genus possible to determine, it would be great. Wink

A member of the tribe Tachinini, which are very well represented in the New World.
Ask Monty Wood, Guelph, Canada, if you still want to proceed to generic level.

Some flies preserved in ethanol and then pinned often get the eyes sunken, how can this be avoided? Best answer: I usually keep alcohol-collected material in alcohol
