Hi!Smile
I want to determinate this Asilidae and I can't do it alone! This Asilidae has been seen in France (100km north from Paris) in may. I photographied it in a way between a field and a wood of Fagus sylvatica and Populus. It was about 10 or 15 mm.
Is there anyone to give me a more precise idea?

I am not at all expert in Asilids, but do take an interest in them, so I might be able to help a little. The four obvious features of yours that will be important in identifying him (he looks like a male to me) are:

1. Those beautiful emerald green eyes.
2. The position and amount of yellow on the legs.
3. The size, shape, position and general appearance of the genitalia.
4. The habit of hanging upside down - some genera do this much more than others.

If I get time I will look at my references and see if I can help more.

Thanks for your answer.
I tried to identify my Asilidea with points that you mention but nothing!
I looked on differents web site, in my documentation, I tried a question in an other forum but no results!
There is a key on this web site :
http://www.geller...ilidae.htm

I think that subfamilly is Laphriinae or Asilinae but I am not sure.

However, I think like you, it is a male.

Bye

Looks like an Asilinae robber fly.

Ok, but according to www.faueur.org there are 69 species of Asilinae in France........

Exactly that is why a specialist is needed for the determination of this species based on these three images. Asilinae is possibly the most difficult subfamily within robber flies with many very similar species.

It seems to be a male of Neomochtherus geniculatus (Meigen, 1820) [Asilidae: Asilinae].

I would think the same. The facial knob is small and placed on the mouth edge, the femora are black and the tibiae red with black apex. That fits on N. geniculatus.

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
