Bringing this old thread back, because reading von Tschirnhaus' description (linked above) - shouldn't this fly be C. strigulus
Aristal base is black (should be yellowish-brown in frontosus
Tergites laterally not yellow (yellow-black stripe in frontosus
Femora dark with yellow knees (yellow with black stripes in frontosus
I am bringing this up mainly because this photo has been added to gallery, labelled as C. frontosus
