Dear friends


This tachinid has puzzled me. Dunno even the genus of this one. Medium size, spotted in the same place as the Acrocera... 1500 m in this Sunday.

Superficially looks like Eriothrix but the antennae are tiny and the petiole too long. The name that is rattling around in my brain AND coincidentally the one that pops out in Tschorsnig's software key is ... Zeuxia Smile I don't know the species in your part of the world though Smile

thanks, Theo. I'm eager for the final confirmation. It seems that we have some Zeuxia!

Yes, I remembered it correctly: zernyi
Most Zeuxia are very obvious as such:
* appendix to bend
* topcel stalked
* both sexes with row of proclinate orbitals.

however, there are exceptions to all of this !
