Could this be a male of Laphria flava? Caught near Dornbirn/Vorarlberg (Western Austria) last year in July at an altitude of about 1200m. Sorry that the photo isn't good!

Hi G?nter,

It certainly looks like a Laphria. However I know that there are several species of this genus in Central Europe and I have never seen any other than L. flava. But don't worry, I agree with Sarah, if you have a little patience someone who knows a lot more about Asilidae (like Mark van Veen) will be able to say more about it.

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
