Hello !

I photographed this Asilidae near Lyon, south-east of France on May 25, 2022.
I did not measured it, but it was pretty big, maybe 20 mm or more.
I was directed to genus Dysmachus, more precisely to Dysmachus fuscipennis, but a doubt remains with D. hamatulus.

What do you think?

Hello, D. fuscipennis. Hamulatus has a bit different hypopygium, I attach Engel’s draw:
In the end of the epandrium you see a notch. In this notch’s lower part, there’s a protruding thing. It is much shorter in hamulatus and much longer in fuscipennis, as in your picture.

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