These pictures are not mine. Were taken by a friend (José Fernández) in Badajoz, Extremadura, SW Spain on 06.04.2014. He asked for help and all I can say for sure is that it reminds me of Hybomitra. Any chance of knowing the species or at least confirming the genus? Sorry, no better pictures of the abdomen Sad

Thanks a lot for whatever help! Smile Smile

I'm sort of guessing, without looking at the full description in Portillo, at Hybomitra zaballosi! Wait for Theo.
If not, then bucket of cold water for me Grin

We can share the bucket of cold water, Steve Grin The reason I posted pictures from a friend even if they don't show all the characters necessary for ID is precisely because there might be something really good hidden here Wink. I told my friend so. I got the Spanish keys by Portillo and they took me directly to Hybomitra zaballosi. I was astonished. But my knowledge of Tabanidae is worse than extremely limited. I did need the opinion of Theo and the other experts Smile Only the abdomen doesn't convince me. But no proper pictures of the abdomen were taken Sad Don't blame my friend though Wink He was about to be bitten Grin And he didn't know he was about to be bitten by one of the finest Tabanids (if it is confirmed) in Spain Grin Grin Grin Grin

I have to apologize for not saying my thoughts at once. But I didn't want to condition your minds Wink

So, thanks a lot, Steve Wink Let's wait for Theo and Libor and see what they have to say about this cutie.

Thanks once more for taking the time to confirm this, Theo!! Smile Smile This is superb!! The only cite I know is the one by Portillo in Valladolid province, when he described the species Wink Truely astonishing finding. My friend should be proud of almost being bitten by such a rarity! Grin Grin Grin

About the question, I guess he needs to stop liking to photograph insects! Grin Grin Grin
