Two nights ago this Tabanidae came to my terrace. Looking around I came to Hybomitra, the species is what I hope to know. Very restless, I only had time to take one picture without focusing properly. I was about to try to take more shots but I couldn't for obvious reasons. In Trujillo, Extremadura, western Spain.

Hi Manuel,

You have been fooled by the red colour.
It is actually the male of Tabanus autumnalis.
Eye is bare !

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