Thank you

I'm going (to try) to abuse :)
I'm a bit confused how females can be told appart from males in tachinidae, I mean, the distance between the eyes doesn't do it the same way as for syrphidae (for instance) and I've seen males bigger and with relatively larger abdomens than females!
Anyone would like to share the knowledge? :)

About the species, what would we be looking for in the thorax?
