Am I correct that this one belongs to the Sarcophagidae? Is a further ID possible? Spotted in Suriname

Tachinidae, possibly Blondeliini which is a speciose group in tropical America. Unlike typical Exoristinae, several genera of Blondeliini parasitize beetles and are found at lights like their hosts.

The dark spots on the wings may help ID.

I agree, definitely a Tachinidae

Thank you! I'll put a question mark with the Blondeliini. Can I be sure of the subfamily Exoristinae John?

I am not sure.

Playing the odds, if it comes to light it is likely to be a beetle parasite. Beetle parasites tend to be in Blondeliini or Dexiinae. It looks more like Blondeliini. Such a wing pattern does exist in Blondellini (Lixophaga umbripennis (van der Wulp) from tropical Mexico).

Okay, I'll keep it as cf. Exoristinae: Blondeliini then.

I am not familiar with Neotropical Lixophaga, but to my Old World eyes it looks like Lixophaga. So I can support Blondeliini.

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
