Photographed very recently in east China. Could it be a Tachininae? Thanks!

Hi Guplox,

So, what is your latitude ? Is this Oriental, Palaearctic ot transitional ?

Fly looks very nice indeed. Gut feeling is Tachinini or just possibly Nemoraea.

Thank you, Theo, for the gut-feeling id! TumbsUp The latitude is 28.61177, might be an oriental species. I'll take a look at Neomoraea recorded in Catalog of Life China. Smile

Just took a quick look at Catalog of Life China. 13 species of Nemoraea have been recorded from China, which are:
Nemoraea angustecarinata (Macquart, 1848)
Nemoraea angustifrons Zhang et Zhao, 2011
Nemoraea bipartita Malloch, 1935
Nemoraea echinata Mesnil, 1953
Nemoraea fasciata (Chao et Shi, 1985)
Nemoraea fenestrata (Mesnil, 1971)
Nemoraea japanica (Baranov, 1935)
Nemoraea javana (Brauer et Bergenstamm, 1895)
Nemoraea metallica Shima, 1979
Nemoraea pellucida (Meigen, 1824)
Nemoraea sapporensis Kocha, 1969
Nemoraea titan (Walker, 1849)
Nemoraea triangulata Villeneuve, 1937

Thanks, yes that is likely Oriental. By the way, first gut feeling was Tachinini.

If Tachinini, it keys out to Mikia and it is definitely NOT M. tepens.

By the way, there is an excellent catalogue of Tachinidae of China bij O'Hara et al.

That's terrific! Thank you Zeegers for the comment. And yes, I see. the name James E. O′Hara (together with Chuntian Zhang and Hiroshi Shima) appears in the namelist of the experts that review the Tachinidae in the Catalog of Life China. TumbsUp

Three Mikia species (M.japanica M. apicalis and M. patellipalpis) have been recorded to occur in east China according to the checklist of Tachinidae reviewed by O'hara et al in the Catalog of Life China. Perhaps it is one of them if it is a Mikia species already described and recorded to occur here. Smile

The three species you mention were moved to genus Anaeudora in the latest world checklist. http://www.nadsdi...klist.html

It should be Anaeudora patellipalpis Mesnil, 1953, or Mikia patellipalpis if you keep the genera together. I do not have a copy of the original description, at page 157 of

Mesnil, L.P. 1953. Nouveaux tachinaires d’Orient. (2e partie.) Bulletin et Annales de la Société Entomologique de Belgique 89: 146–178.

Yellow basicosta (前缘基鳞) excludes orientalis and nigribasicosta. Marked wings exclude japanica. Lack of median marginals (中缘鬃) on tergite 2 excludes apicalis. Entirely black abdomen and legs excludes yunnanica.

I have not seen a description of the later-described Mikia choui Wang & Zhang, 2012. The checklist of world species says it is recorded from "Central" China, defined as Gansu, Ningxia, and Shaanxi.

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
