On the 23rd of July I've collected a mating couple of Sarcotachina umbrinervis in the dunes of Aplia, in the North of Portugal. I left them both in the same tube alive and two days later I saw several larvae eating the male. I took the opportunity to try to rear them. I fed them with dead flies and by the 8th of August they started to pupate. On the 21st the adults began to emerge. Below you can see some photos.

Thanks PierreSmile. I was wondering if this species is a cleptoparasite, feeding on some wasp provisions, or instead being necrophagous.

If you experienced a very sluggish site recently, it may have been because someone tried to upload a maliciuous script by force. It appears to have failed. The visitor was blocked further access.
