Hello

I'm new to the Tabanidae and I'd like to have an opinion on these two males which make me hesitate between Tabanus miki for this one and Tabanus bromius.

The eyes are not hairy and the size is about 11.6mm.

Thank you in advance for your clarifications.
Best regards

This is clearly the male of maculicornis
(bluish colour, long hairs on occiput, long palpus and of course shape of alula)

Buy the book !

Thank you very much,

The worst thing is that I already have this book and I've used it to come to this conclusion.
I missed the criterion of the head being much larger than the thorax and I was on the wrong track...

But it's helped me make progress, thank you very much again.

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
