I photographed this fly near Assergi (AQ), Italy, 900m a.s.l. on April 1st 2021. I think it is a Tachinidae, but is it possible to identify its genus or species from these photos?

Thank you in advance,

Hi Emanuele, I think it's a Dexia rustica. (vertex broad like female? but discals on T3 & 4 like male?)

Greetings, Eric

Female ameigenia, Iā€™d say. Bare arista and erect apical scutellars.

Extensions in uppercase are (and were) accepted for gif, jpg, jpeg and png

OK, thanks Roger, now if someone would just ID the fly I would be happy.

FTAO - Gordon; Please make sure that you use lower case, because attachments with extensions in upper case (capitals) are rejected. So sayeth GOD AKA Paul. Cool

A file called "Fly01a" has an UPPERCASE "F" Gordon. The site takes a dim view of UPPERCASE "'F's"!! awkward

OK, it has started working now, no idea what was going on.

I know I have been away a long time - but why can't I load a 63Kb file called Fly01a
