Found this large (10mm) tachinid buzzing around in the underbrush 6-29, near Chicago IL USA. Never seen one before or since. Anyone familiar with N. American tachinids? Thanks!

Surely someone has an idea for a genus on this lovely fly?

Hi Bruce - well i will go as far as to say it is a tachinid! Smile But North American stuff is way out of my field of expertise. Jim O'Hara in Canada might be able to help - have you tried him?

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
