Hello, this is my first thread here!

I saw this Tachinid fly August 18th, 2023 that I managed to ID down to Microphtalma species. I believe it is most likely M. disjuncta. Is it possible to tell from these photos? Location: Lynchburg Virginia

Thank you!

It looks like Microphthalma disjuncta, which is now thought to be a species group.

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