hello Asilidae-forum,

On a very warm afternoon I wathced this little elongated robberfly into a flowerfield.
The wings are short and got a gold gloss on the edges. Cool
The legs got also a golden glimpse.
Femurs are redish with black behind.

I am wondering what kind of robberfly this will be?
Maiby someone can tell me?

greeting, Robert

Hello Robert,

this is a female of Leptogaster sp., perhaps L. cylindrica.

Hi Gisela,

I think you are right about this Leptogaster sp., this is L. cylindrica!

Thank you for your reaction Smile

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
