Pandelleia sexpunctata (Tachinidae) female

France, Haute-Pyrenees, Barege
4th August 2016. Altitude 1 725m
Using Mesnil's 1975 key, very wide frons and strong spots on T2, this is P. sexpunctata rather than the other Western European species P. otiorrynchi

The specimen was collected a few years ago but quickly became greasy. Some work with solvent has mostly restored it for these current photos.

As sometimes happens, a lucky first sweep on steep grazed hillside with low juniper yielded this lovely Pandelleia. As also sometimes happens, another hour's sweeping trying for another provided for nothing other than a very tired arm! There were plentiful large black weevils feeding on thistles which may well have been the target host.

Hi Steve

Very nice indeed ! I once caught this species in the Spanish Pyrenees in the Ripoll - Olot region. Peter Tschorsnig informed me at that time that he believed sexpunctata and otiorynchi to be synonyms.

Which would solve all your problems Smile

Looking at the key, synonyms would seem to be reasonable Smile
