Looks like a classic Asilidae, but can anyone help me find out which?

Thanks, Sarah

question: was it a large (15mm plus) or small (around 10mm) robberfly? That aids in identification!

You're quite right Mark, sorry, I usually do try and remember to add the dimensions. It was I'd say almost exactly 15 mm, Sarah

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
