I was in Zaragoza in final August 2008. I went to the Pirineos with my friend Isidro to spot rare beauties. Unfortunately there was a storm after one hour of field trip, and we could have just only a glimpse of the richness in PLAN - Pirineos. But the few minutes we had there were gold. We spot the rare Halidaya aurea - another tachinid. We also spot the Stylogymnomyia nitens. And a beautiful symphyt wasp on Daucus carota, and other stuff. Wink
This is, I think, a Dexiosoma cf. caninum (Tachinidae). Maybe Theo or CHris or Jaako can confirm.. or not...

I must add that arista is plumose and excavation doesn't reach the final oF the t1+2
maybe Dinera?

It is not Dexiosoma, nor Dexia nor Estheria (nor Zeuxia, for that matter). The abdomen has blackish sublateral spots, often seen in Billaea.
Or it might be Dinera carinifrons. Need to check my collection.

I did not confirm it yet, but I checked my collection and can confirm it now

Dinera carinifrons female.

Rather common in mountains in Europe
