Excuse me for my unperfect english Smile

I caught this Asilidae, in the wet part of the plain of la Crau, near a pond, in the south-east of France, V.4.2005, 25mm

It seems to be a Laphria, and perhaps ephippium...
What about ? Thx for all

Hello sylvain,
Welcome to the site! Grin
There seems to be nothing wrong with your Englisch, so why excusing yourself for it? Wink
About your Laphria, I think you are right by thinking this is a laphria ephippium.
Laphria flava has, as its name indicates, much more yellow hairs.
