With hairy eyes and several eye bands this is either a Hybomitra or one of the Tabanus that looks like a Hybomitra.

Hi John!
Yes, it's a Hybomitra species. Was it large? With these peculiar spots on the wing membrane I think it should be a male of H.lasiophthalma, at least I came to this result with Teskey's, 1990 keys...

Thank you. I am not confident using Teskey's keys for male Tabaninae. Wings usually obscure details of the abdominal pattern he uses. In this case the spotted wings in combination with the orange-sided abdomen should be sufficient for ID.

The female is lasiophthalma for sure and the male might very well be also !

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

Yes, dipterologists from far abroad, please buy your copy at veldshop. Stamps will be expensive, but he, the book is unreasonably cheap Smile
