I had this Tachinidae in a yellow pan trap on the bank of a small brook in France, Tarn. Which genus or species could it be?

Thanks in advance.

Looks like a Carcelia. Could you provide a more lateral view of the head, showing the gena ?

Thank you! I tried to key it with Tschnorig (1994) and with some doubt end up at Carcelia dubia. Could that be correct?

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