I found this Cylindromyia on 19th June 2021 on nutrient-poor grassland in the very east of Niedersachsen (Germany), Landkreis L√ľneburg.
I tried to identify it using the key of Tschorsnig & Herting (2005). But as a tachinid beginner, I find it difficult to identify all the bristles and other features mentioned in the key.

Yes, difficult genus. Antenne is longer and more orange in intermedia. If a basal scutellar bristle is present, intermedia is highly unlikely.
So this is a small female brassicaria.

Thank you again, Theo!
So there's a problem already in the first step of the key, where I decided for 1b (hind tibia with pv -bristles).
Am I wrong with the bristles (as shown in fig. 163 in Tschorsnig & Herting)? Or is this feature not always valid?

P. = posterior, so backside

pd can never be in front of ad.

Yes, of course it is the other way round!
I didn't realize that fig. 163 in Tschorsnig & Herting shows the LEFT hind tibia, my photo shows the RIGHT hind tibia - sorry.

It is very easy to make these kind of mistakes from pictures. Glad you got it.
