Hello everybody !!!

Every day I can picture some Tachinidae that looks like Paratryphera sp ...

This specimen was pictured in my garden on 2024-04-20 and could be identified I think as Paratryphera barbatula (Rondani, 1859) , female

I could measure it on picture : 8,5mm

Palpus are black.

Section of m between m-cu and the deflection as long as the distance of the defelction to the wing edge is = 1,77

Fore tibia with 2 posterior bristles

Lateral bristles missing on hair-like Tschornig Fig 112 seen differences between P. barbatula et P. bisetosa in Tschornig page 38

I hope the ID is good ...

Thank you for reading and/or commenting my post,

Have a good day,

Paratryphera is very rare in Belgium, so never your starting hypothesis

This is a male Meigenia

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
