Hello,

I photographed this fly near Casteddu Etzu (OR), Sardinia, Italy, on June 8th 2022. I'm not sure if it is a Tachinidae or Rhinophoridae. Could you please help me to identify its genus or species from these photos?

Thank you in advance,
Emanuele

Hi Emanuele, I think it's Eriothrix sp., Tachinidae, but not rufomaculata, which is very common here, but possibly a female of the South European species like E. apennina (occiput only black setae, tergites at least basally dusted).
Greetings, Eric

The pattern on thoracic dorsum is very different from Eriothrix in and in any case, there is a petiole in the wing venation so it would have been rufomaculata. Also, the first two antennal segments are orange, not black.
But, as said, I don’t think it is Eriothrix. I am inclining towards a Zeuxia, yes, some of these have red sidemarkings on tergites. Need to check the collection.

Also, the legs are very long, suggesting either Dexiini or Minthoini.

Oops, I've just recognized, that my Mintho rufiventris have the petiole, too.
Thanks, Theo!

It is Hyperaea sanguinea, already known from Sardinia.
