Hi, I have taken pictures of this Asilidae in Schönower Heide north of Berlin (Germany).
When applying the key of Wolf, Gebel and Geller-Grimm (Die Raubfliegen Deutschlands) I find Machimus gonatistes but with uncertainty.
Could you please confirm or correct?
Date: 15-Jul-2022
Place: Schönower Heide (52.68630, 13.5212596)
Sand grassland and heath.

Thank you and best regards

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
