Picture taken in April, east China (Zhejiang province). It has long and slender legs, so I would identify it as Dexiinae. But could it be further narrowed down? It seems to bear a good resemblance to Cordyligaster. Is this genus a good candidate? Thanks in advance.

I am not sure. Some “Blondeliini” like Eophyllophyla can be very similar.

Superb! Smile Eophyllophyla in the Blondeliini tribe seems to be much more promising than Cordyligaster in the Dexiinae subfamily. I think my specimen is very similar to Xespok's Japanese Tachinidae in this thread: https://www.dipte...ead_id=203 Thank you very much! TumbsUp

Did a quick check. Eophyllophila filipes and E. elegans have been recorded from China.

Found a picture of E. at this link:https://biodivers...hila%20sp. , which looks different.

I did a quick look using Google images search at pictures of species in Blondeliini that have been recorded from China without finding a good match so far. So maybe something else. Eophyllophila, however, seems to be the most promising genus in the Blondeliini tribe.

Not sure. Some pictures of E. (e.g. https://www.inatu...s/74505979) found at Inat seem somewhat similar.

Medina collaris (https://commons.w...llaris.jpg) has similarly long slender legs. The abdomen seems a bit too bulky though.

Some flies preserved in ethanol and then pinned often get the eyes sunken, how can this be avoided? Best answer: I usually keep alcohol-collected material in alcohol

Yes, dipterologists from far abroad, please buy your copy at veldshop. Stamps will be expensive, but he, the book is unreasonably cheap Smile
