Last year we collected some Helicoverpa armigera in southern Europe (Greece, Italy, Spain). From some of these we reared a tachind fly we suspect of being Tachina praeceps. Can anyone confirm our suspicion?

Right, Andre.

Could be praeceps, could be magnicornis nupta.
Can't tell from the picture

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
