Many thanks Eric. It's great to get a species ID on this nice fly. I can't find ANY pics of it on the net, but have found its distribution listed as: Iran, Greece, Georgia, Armenia, Azerbaijan,
Jordan, Israel, Turkey, Egypt on this link http://www.biosoil.ru/fee/2007/N-173/N-173.pdf Lesbos is an interesting island (for many kinds of wildlife) as it gets a mix of European and Asian species. I have one other asilid to post, which looks more "typical", but who knows what it may turn out to be! I'll get this Pycnopogon in the gallery in due course.
