Would I be right in saying this is an Asilidae. Photographed in South East England during July.

Sorry the picture is not too sharp.

I hope Mark van Veen can confirm, but this should be a Neoitamus.

Thankyou Theo,

That is very useful. I can find (at present) only two species of neoitamus recorded in England. N.cothurnatus and N. cyanuras. N.cyanuras being the more common. Photos I have found of N.cyanuras do look remarkably similar to mine. I'll keep looking for a photo of N.cothurnatus to compare.

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

Yes, dipterologists from far abroad, please buy your copy at veldshop. Stamps will be expensive, but he, the book is unreasonably cheap Smile
