Good morning!

This fly I found on 10th of June 2023 in Greece, Peloponnese near Finicounda about 40meters NN.
Is it possible to determine it?

Many thanks for helping.

Hallo Guntram, I think it's a male Philipomyia graeca.

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