Very interesting ... not Gymnosoma, not Cistogaster, doesn't have dark wing patches so not Ectophasia ... not Elomyia lateralis ... but after all that I am not sure what it *is* Grin

Maybe "its not", can a fly be wrong itself? I think that too many times :(
Thanks :)

Well, it is certainly a tachinid - so it is right-enough Wink

Looks like Hemyda obscuripennis.

The darkening of the wing is 'covered' by the flash

That's interesting ... the abdomen looked too round and bristly for me to think of a Hemyda Smile

Chris

i agree it is unusually bristly, if it is Hemyda. The number and length of bristles seem to be quite variable, I have just noticed in my collection. So it still might be correct.
And I don't have an alternative.
Dusting on thorax agrees perfectly well !

I agree, it does look odd and I couldn't think what else it might be Smile

There is an alternative: Besseria lateritia, the Besseria with open topcel. However, the abdominal pattern does not agree.
If you could see more of the head....
