August 06, 2022 in the south of France, on a kermess holm oak.
The fly measures 13 mm in total, from the head to the wing tips.
I don't know what it was looking for on the bark of the tree but it was moving a lot, without flying away and without leaving the tree.
Thank you for your help in identifying it.

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