I'm looking for Gymnosoma species, especially G. inornatum, G. desertorum and G. brachypeltae,
but also G. acrosterni, G. carpocoridis and G. siculum
for the project "Revision of genus Gymnosoma (Diptera: Tachinidae) with using DNA analysis" (also with morphological revision).

Specimens determination can be doubtful (I'll try to verify this).

I can borrow specimens for this research (and return all specimens later) or offer exchange for some specimens of tachinids from Poland.

It sounds like a very useful project but (sadly) I don't have any of those very rare species. I wish you luck though and I look forward to hearing your results Smile

The part that got deleted is "longer, dark median stripe on thorax"

You are correct, the copula also is phragmitidis. Corrected in the Gallery.
