Ansbach, garden near Frankenhoehe Nature Park, old deciduous forest, 2023-08-16
on Euonymus japonicus
tachinidae.eu led me to a male Clemelis, but the wing venation looks like C. majuscula from Southern France. Is Clemelis correct? Not correct: male Compsilura concinnata
Thank you for your comments, Eric

I am thinking male Compsilura and the ocellars seem missing …. you can check the original.

Thanks for the many angles !

Thank you so much Theo! My silly mistake: I don't no why, but I've excluded Compsilura because I thought it should have bare eyes - which is of course not true! And yes, no ocellars!

I see Compsilura frequently on Buxus (looking for Cydalima perspectalis, the Buxusmot?)

Nice. Compsilura is highly polyphagous, and I think the only Tachinidae regularly found in both Lepidoptera and Symphyta.
And yes, it is atypical for a Blondeliini in having hairy eye, 4 post DC and so on. Males therefore are tricky.

Compsilura is still common in southern Europe, but has become extremely rare if not extinct in large areas of central Europe, I haven’t found it since my youth. No idea what is happening.

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
