Ansbach, garden near Frankenhoehe Nature Park, old deciduous forest, 2023-09-27
Hedera helix

My first attempt was female T. fera, then male T. magnicornis - but both don't match.
Is this the mysterious male Tachina nupta?

Looking very forward to your advanced ideas!
Tachina fera female!

It is a female. I would call nupta only in males.
Moreover, it lokks like a typical fera to me.

Yes, indeed, I thought it was a male - base on this blurry image...
And the yellow antennae that I recognised for the first time.

Thank you once again, Theo, for bringing me back to earth! Frown
