It's a female and we cannot see the stripe on tergite 5!
The colour of the fore tarsus fits for both but the tarsomere 4 of it seems to be wider than long, so it could be a female T. magnicornis. But that's not sure!
Greetings, Eric Kloeckner

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
