Found this fly in Northern Portugal (near Ponte de Lima). I think it might be a Tachinidae but is it possible to go further in the ID? I have only this angle because it flew off.
Thanks in advance

Rhinophoridae looks indeed more likely. Phyto is promising but the dm-m vein on the wing is not S-shaped like in the genus Phyto. I don't know if it is really a criterion or not. How about Tricogena ?

Scutellum lacks rd.
There are many species of Phyto, so your objection does not bother me.

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
