Hello Lauzette, yes, it's a tachinid and I think it's not completely black - the abdomen seems to be red laterally. Combined with the petiole on R₅ and the large costal spine: male Eriothrix rufomaculata.

(ps. you chose the wrong forum)

I think you cannot change it, but you may ask Paul Beuk to move your thread to the "Diptera (adults)" forum.

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