From a hotel park on the South-East coast of Crete, 25-SEP--2020, about 12-14mm. What did I see back than? Thank you, Jörg

Hi,

Female Stichopogon with reddish antennae and reddish femora would in my eyes be S. scaliger but that is also the only species that I have experience with. God knows how many undescribed species occur in Greece.

Best, Jonne

Oh, a problem we probably have with all "more exotic" Asilidae (or all insects:-( ). Look at my Omani Asilidae ..... Would you agree on Sticopogon cf. scaliger? Kindest regards, Jörg

They look different enough to be two different species, only with collected specimens one can say more about them.

Sorry, misunderstanding - I just mentioned the Oman Asilidae as an example for potentially "new" species. So I go for Sticopogon cf. scaliger for the fly from Crete.

Looks like typical S. scaliger (female) to me.

Greetings,
Henrik

Great, so I remove the cf. - I would be happy if more of my Asilidae could at least be identified on genus level.
